ter at the salary established for the 
particular class to which they are 
appointed. The ordinance provides 
that the City Council may include 
in the salary of any person em- 
ployed in the department additional 
compensation based upon the ex- 
perience and efficiency of the in- 
dividual serving in such position. 

The effect of this ordinance, if

ployed as an Assistant Corporation 
Counsel will enter the service at the 
salary established for the position 
to which he is appointed, and that 
increases of salary may not be given 
except upon recommendation of the 
Corporation Counsel and as a re- 
ward of experience and efficiency 
and of this experience and effici- 
ency the Finance Committee and the 
City Council will be made the ulti- 
mate judges. 

I would respectfully suggest the 
reference of this communication

The following communication, 
which was referred to the Commit-

Office op the Mayor,| 
Gkicago, January 4, 1915.} 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 
Gentlemen — At a recent meeting 
of your Honorable Body an order 
was passed directing the General 
Superintendent of Police to report 
each week directly to the City Coun- 
cil the complaints of robberies re- 
ceived by his department and fur- 
ther directing that this list when 
received be published in the Pro- 
ceedings of the City Council. In 
the Journal of the City Council, of 
your meeting of December 28, 1914, 
eleven pages are taken up with the 
publication of this report. Owing 
to the size of the bound copies of 
the Journal, it has been necessary 
in the past year to print the same 
in two volumes. It seems to me 
that sufficient publicity would be 
given to the reported robberies, if 
the publication of the same were 
made in one of the pamphlets con-

lished, instead of in the Journal of

Yours respectfully,

COMMISSIONER OF GAS AND 
ELECTRICITY. 

The Clerk presented the follow- 
ing communication submitted by 
the Commissioner of Gas and Elec- 
tricity, which was referred to the 
Committee on Finance : . 



Department of Gas and] 

Electricity, )■ 

Chicago, December 31, 191 4.J 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and 
City Council: 

contract for street lighting. 

Gentlemen — In accordance with 
the law, the Department of Gas and 
Electricity advertised for pro- 
posals for rented street lights for 
the year 1915, in approximately the 
following quantities: 

9500 Incandescent Gas Lamps. 
500 Ornamental Incandescent Gas 
Lamps. 
5000 Incandescent Gasoline Lamps. 
The advertisement specified that 
sealed proposals would be received 
until 11 A. M. Wednesday, Decem- 
ber 23 1914. 

In response to this advertise- 
ment, but one proposal was re- 
ceived, that of the American De- 
velopment Company, the prices 
quoted for l^he various types of 
lights being as follows: 

Per Year. 

Incandescent Gas Lamps $12.12 

Ornamental Incandescent Gas 
Lamps, if spaced 60, or 
more, per mile 12.54 

Ornamental Incandescent Gas 
Lamps, if spaced less than 

60 per mile 13«86 

Incandescent Gasoline Lamps 27.90 
The foregoing prices are quoted 
in the proposal conditioned upon 
the award of a contract for the fur- 
nishing of all of the service out- 
lined in the advertisement. A sec- 
ond proposal is made, conditioned 
upon the furnishing of one or more 
classes of service separately, the 
price being 60 cents per lamp 
higher for each type of service. A 
letter accompanied the proposal 
from which the following is a quo- 
tation: 

"We have also found it neces- 
sary to slightly increase the cost 
per lamp on account of the reser- 



2688 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 4, 1915. 



vation of 15 per cent of the 
monthly bills to the end of the 
contract period. If this can be 
eliminated there will be a reduc- 
tion of six cents per lamp per 
year on. both classes of service." 

This company is at present and 
has been for sometime past, fur- 
nishing gas and gasoline lighting 
service to the City. They have done 
the work in an efficient and satis- 
factory manner. The prices ob- 
taining for the year 1914, are: 

Per Year. 

Incandescent Gas Lamps $11.76 

Ornamental Incandescent Gas 
Lamps, if spaded 60, or 
more, per mile 12.54 

Ornamental Incandescent Gas 
Lamps, if spaced less than 
60 per mile 13.80 

Incandescent Gasoline Lamps 30.24 

I believe the prices quoted are 
fair and would respectfully suggest 
that your honorable body authorize 
the Commissioner of Gas and Elec- 
tricity to enter into a contract with 
this company for the furnishing of 
all of the various types of service 
outlined above in accordance with 
its proposal. 

A surety bond of $100,000 will 
be furnished, and this amount will 
amply protect the city. 

This company has equipment 
necessary to the furnishing of the 
service, amounting to something in 
excess of $100,000, installed on 
public streets. 

A close inspection is being made 
on the service and penalties ex- 
acted for all outages. 

For these reasons, and in view 
of the fact that a considerable sav- 
ing can be leffected thereby, it is 
recommended that this 15 per cent 
reservation clause be eliminated 
from the contract. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Ray Palmer, 

Commissioner.

The following is the communica-

in the foregoing report: 

Department of Health,^ 
Chicago, December 14, 1914. j 

Hon. John A. Richert, Chairman, 
Committee on Finance. 'City of 
Chicago : 

Dear Sir — For your information 
I submit the following report on the 
operation of the Municipal Reduc- 
tion Plant. 

. Upon the acquisition of the prop- 
erty by the city the work of the re- 
construction of the plant was im- 
mediately begun. It was seen at 
once that the thing which was most 
immediately necessary was to re- 



construct the receiving end of the 
plant in order to obviate the serious 
nuisance which had hitherto exist- 
ed. It was also obvious that we 
could not, during the current year, 
expect to keep the plant running 
and at the same time rebuild the 
mill house, which was the interme- 
diate station ' in the process of re- 
duction, receiving as it did the 
garbage which had passed through 
the dryers and preparing it for 
transmission to the grease extrac- 
tion building. Contract was there- 
fore made for the sale of the dried 
garbage, and work concentrated on 
putting into good shape the other 
parts of the plant. 

SUMMARY OF CONSTRUCTION. 

Work on new additions to and re- 
habilitation of the old garbage plant 
was started during the montli of 
February. The property fronting 
the river was graded from an ele- 
vation of plus 12 to an elevation of 
plus 6, and a concrete dock was 
built extending from the center line 
of 39th street on the south to the 
property line on the north, making 
a total of 425 feet of new dock. 

A modern electric monorail 
structure was erected, designed so 
as to extend ten feet over the river, 
for the unloading of garbage boxes 
from barges; its arrangement also 
permits the unloading of boxes 
from wagons. The equipment con- 
sists of five 5-ton electric cranes. 

In conjunction with the monorail 
structure a new reinforced concrete 
garbage receiving building was 
erected, with a capacity of 1,400 
tons, and designed so that the load- 
ed garbage boxes are carried in at 
top of building where they are 
dumped, cleaned and returned to 
the wagons or barges. 

A new granite pavement encircles 
the receiving building, to facilitate 
the delivery of garbage by wagon. 

Two new apron conveyors and two 
new garbage crushers were installed 
in old picker building, in conjunc-

tion with one garbage crusher and 
conveyor already in place, which 
latter were thoroughly overhauled 
and extended to correspond with de- 
sign of new receiving building. The 
second floor of picker building has 
been completely remodeled and 
made into dressing rooms, toilets 
and shower baths with modern 
equipment. Two new garbage con- 
veyors were added to one already 
in place, which was built to corre- 
spond with new ones, to carry gar- 
bage from crushers to primary dry- 
ers. 

In remodeling No. 1 dryer build-, 
ing a new reinforced concrete dis- 
tributing table with steel chutes 
and new button conveyors to feed 
dryers were installed; also three 
additional exhaust fans and new 
breeching built into condenser to 
allow^ a more direct passage for va- 
por and gases from dryers. 

The remodeling of six primary 
dryers included the rebuilding of 
furnaces, complete new agitating 
plates in each, also new gearing and 
drive for each. An automatic spray- 
ing arrangement was installed in 
condenser tower, in connection with 
a spray header in each chamber 
from the water reservoir on roof. 

The remodeling of No. 2 dryer 
building included building of new 
oil burning furnaces with checkered 
arches. 

The No. 3 dryer building is newly 
constructed of reinforced concrete 
and steel, and is practically ready to 
operate. The equipment consists of 
two new type Atlas direct- indirect 
heat garbage dryers, with necessary 
elevators, conveyors, condensers, 
smokestacks, etc. 

A dried garbage storage bin with 
concrete lining, on structural steel 
supports, was constructed with an 
approximate capacity of 300 tons, 
so arranged that cars can be loaded 
with dried garbage through thirty- 
two gates provided in bottom of 
hopper. 

The old boiler house was remod- 



eled and a brick power house and 
transformer station were added; 
automatic stop valves were in- 
stalled and piping changed on three 
Sterling boilers. 

The power house equipment con- 
sists of one air compressor, capac- 
ity 1,000 cubic feet per minute; 
three 35-H. P. centrifugal pumps; 
one 100-K. W. motor generator set; 
electric light and power distributing 
switchboard, boiler feed pumps, 
heater, etc. 

A concrete tunnel in which were 
installed all water, isteam, oil and 
electric light and power mains leads 
from the power house to the vari- 
ous buildings. 

A twelve- inch water main has 
been put in to supply city water to 
the plant. 

A complete new equipment of 
electric wiring and motors has been 
installed for driving machinery and 
lighting purposes. 

One 100- ton track scale bas been ^ 
installed, upon which, since Novem- 
ber 9th, all car weighing in con- 
nection with the plant has been 
done. In this connection a steam 
car mover has also been installed. 

There has been approximately 
4,000 cubic yards of debris and spoil 
bank loaded on scows and removed 
from the plant.

It is my opinion that during the 
coming year the cost of handling 
garbage will be materially reduced, 
as we will have additional equip- 
ment in operation which will make 
it possible to handle more garbage 
with a proportionately small in- 
crease in expense. 

The plant during the busy sum- 
mer season, when the maximum de- 
livery reached over 700 tons, and 
up to the present time, has handled 
each day's delivery of garbage 
promptly and in a sanitary manner. 
It has never been necessary to oper- 
ate on Sunday to dispose of any of 
the previous week's delivery of 
garbage. 

It is a matter of fact that while 
the reduction of the city garbage 
was being done by the old reduction 
plant it was necessary during the 
busy summer season to not only 
have an accumulation of garbage 
carried from day to day but it was 
necessary to operate on Sundays 
and holidays. 

I think we are justified in claim- 
ing that the result of the operation 
of the plant on the sanitary side 
has been entirely satisfactory, and 
although we have been handicapped 
in the operation by the necessity of 
carrying on work of construction 
and operation at the same time, and 
have, of course, to pay much higher 
rates and work more men than did 
the Chicago Reduction Company, we 
have been able to make a reason- 
ably satisfactory financial showing 
as appears from the following 
figures. 

In preparing these figures I have 



figured the cost of purchase and 
construction on a six months' basis; 
that is to say, as we did not pur- 
chase the plant until February and 
the expenditures for construction 
were made from week to week 
thereafter, the greater part of them 
after the first of July, it seemed fair, 
for purposes of rough calculation, 
to lump all purchase and recon- 
struction cost together in estimat- 
ing total investment, and then fig- 
ure the interest on the same for six 
months at five per cent. It then oc- 
curred to me that objection might 
be offered that the city had made a 
considerable investment at the 
Grace street plant during the pres- 
ent year, both in laboi* and mate- 
rials, and that it might be claimed 
that as such investment was part of 
the city's expenditure on account of 
garbage during the year 1914 the 
interest on that expenditure should 
be considered a debit against any 
saving made by reason of the fact 
that the city was no longer paying 
$47,500 a year to the Chicago Re- 
duction Company. 

We began to run the plant to a 
slight extent in June, but it was not 
fully operated until the first of July. 
I have therefore figured the cost of 
operation by actual expenditure 
from July 1 to December 10, and 
estimated it from then to the 31st 
of December. The same is true of 
the income. The actual figures are 
given up to the 10th of December 
and the remaining days of Decem- 
ber estimated.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



January 4, 1915. 



$162,905.71 



This shows a net saving 



of 



29,796.13 



Of course this statement takes no 
account of depreciation, but in view 
of the fact that much of the plant 
has been in process of construction 
and operation at the same time, 
there was no available basis upon 
which depreciation could be figured. 
The amount invested at Grace 
street during the current year, most 
of which, of course, was labor-cost, 
was $61,347.13, interest at 5 per 
cent, $3,067.36, so that even after 
taking the interest on all the money 
spent at Grace street, the city has 
made a saving. 

In view of the circumstances un- 
der which we were compelled to 
operate, I think we are justified in 
claiming that this is a reasonably 
satisfactory showing. 

The fact that we were able to re- 
ceive the maximum summer load 
and handle it on the day of receipt 
without any inconvenience would, 
of itself, have justified a consider- 
able loss on the investment. As it 
is, I think we can count on a very 
substantial income as soon as means 
are provided for rebuilding the re- 
duction end of the plant. 

In making this report it would 
not be just for me to omit to point 
out to the committee that the suc- 
cess of the reconstruction of the 
plant has only been made possible 
through the services of Col. Henry 
A. Allen, consulting engineer, and 
the successful operation through 



the services of Mr. P. J. Burke, gen- 
eral foreman.

of the City member upon the

with the recommendation that it 
be published and filed as a matter 
of information.

Chairman.

consideration of said report.

said report. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the opinion 
transmitted with the foregoing re- 
port : 

Law Department,! 
Chicago, Decemiber 15, 1914.| 

Hon. Eugene H. Block, Chairman, 
Committee on Local Transporta- 
tion: 

Dear Sir — In your letter under 
date of December 3rd, 1914, you 
ask this department for an opinion 
setting forth the powers and duties 
of the city member of the Board of 
Supervising Engineers. Replying 
thereto we beg to state : 

The ordinances of February Uth, 
1907, granting rights to the Chi- 
cago Railways Company and the 
Chicago City Railway Company 
respectively, nowhere define the 
duties of the city's representative 
on the Board of Supervising En- 
gineers as an individual member of 
such board. Tlie various powers 
and duties are throughout the or- 
dinances referred to as the powers 
and duties of the "Board of Super- 
vising Engineers". 

To specify in detail the powers 
and duties of the city member on 
said board would require us to set 
out the duties and powers of the 
entire Board of Supervising En- 
gineers. 

While of course the duties of the 
city member are inseparable from 
the duties of the board, yet we be- 
lieve that there is by implication 



imposed upon the city member of 
the board (in the acceptance of his 
appointment by the city), the duty 
of particularly watching and look- 
ing after the interests of the city, 
which he especially represents, in 
all matters coming before such 
board in which the city is an in- 
terested party. 

With regard to attendance at 
meetings we call your attention to 
the following provisions contained 
under the heading "Salaries and 
Expenses"; found in the ordinances 
of February 11th, 1907. 

"Each of the other two mem- 
bers of said Board shall, in addi- 
tion to attending the monthly 
meetings of the Board, attend 
such other meetings as may be 
called by the Chairman, and be 
paid for his services as a member 
of said Board, compensation at 
the rate of one hundred dollars 
($100.00) per day, and his trav- 
eling and living expenses while 
away from his home, and ac- 
tually engaged upon this work, it 
being understood that his total 
compensation for services shall 
not be less than thirty-six hun- 
dred dollars ($3,600.00) nor more 
than ten thousand dollars 
r$l 0,000.00) per year. The 
Chairman of said Board shall 
call (in addition to such meetings 
as he may deem desirable or 
necessary) a meeting of said 
Board at any time upon request 
of the President of either of said 
companies, or the Mayor of said 
City." 

The attendance, by the city 
r^epresentative, of meetings other 
than those of the board is optional 
with such city representative. It 
is to be presumed, however, that 
in attending meetings other than 
those of the Board of Supervising 
Engineers (as for example the 
meetings of the Local Transporta- 
tion Committee) and in other ways 
keeping in touch \yith the city 
officials interested in securing the

best transportation service for the 
city, the city representative will be 
better able to obtain the viewpoint 
of the city in all matters coming 
before him, with the result that he 
will be in a better position to look 
after the interests of the City of 
Chicago, which 'he particularly 
represents on the Board of Super- 
vising Engineers. 

Yours very truly,

Chicago, January 4, 1915. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the 

City of Chicago in City Council 

Assembled: 

Your Committee on Local Trans- 
portation, to whom was referred 
- (December 16, 1912, page 2748) an 
ordinance granting francbise rights 
to the Chicago & Northern Inter- 
urban Railroad, having had the | 
same under advisement, beg leave 
to report and recommend that it be 
placed on file. 

Your Committee believes that an 
ordinance of this character should 
limit the term of grant to twenty 
years and should provide for im- 
mediate track elevation, and indi- 
cated to the sponsors for the com- 
pany that it would go no further 
with negotiations unless an or- 
dinance should be submitted em- 
bodying these terms. The attorney 
for the company would not meet 
this condition.

CRIME INVESTIGATION. 
The select Committee, appointed

the following preliminary report, 
which was, on motion of Aid. Mer- 
riam, ordered published and re- 
ferred to the Committee on Fi- 
nance : 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the 

City of Chicago in City Council 

Assembled: 

Your Committee on Grime begs 
leave to submit the following pre- 
liminary report for consideration in 
connection with the pending appro- 
priation bill: 

(1) Having considered the work 
done by the Psychopathic Labora- 
tory, the committee recognizes the 
great value of this new departure in 
the treatment of crime, and recom- 
mends the increase of the facilities 
of the laboratory. 

(2) The committee recommends 
the submission, at the next election, 
of a bond issue providing for the 



purchase of a farm colony, and 
buildings therewith, to be utilized 
in connection with the work of the 
House of Correction. Testimony sub- 
mitted to the committee regarding 
the present situation at the Bride- 
well, and other testimony showing 
the improvements made in other 
places where farm colonies have 
been established, makes clear the 
necessity of the establishment of 
such an institution in Chicago. 

(3) The committee recommends 
the construction of a House of Shel- 
ter for women at once iil connection 
with the present Bridewell, and the 
equipment of a permanent House of 
Shelter outside the city as soon as 
this can be done. 

The estimated cost of these im- 
provements is as follows : 
Land for farm colony. . . .$100,000.00 
Buildings for farm colony 100,000.00 

House of Shelter 40,000.00 

It is estimated that $15,000 would 
be required for a House of Shelter 
in connection with the present 
Bridewell, and that $25,000 would 
be adequate for the construction of 
a larger shelter outside of the city. 

The detailed facts and the argu- 
ments upon which these conclusions 
are based will be submitted in full 
in the forthcoming report of the 
committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Charles E. Merriam, 

Chairman.

The following is said resolution as 
adopted : 

Whereas, That parfeof the Illinois 
and Michigan Canal situate and be- 
ing within the corporate limits of 
the City of Chicago and outside 
thereof to the City of Joliet, has be- 
come and now is unfit and useless 
for the purposes of navigation and 
has become and now is practically a 
public nuisance and liable to cause 
the spread of pestilence and disease 
among the inhabitants of the cities 
and villages along said canal; and 
^^ Whereas, By the provisions of 
"An Act to enlarge the corporate 
limits of The Sanitary District of 
Chicago, etc.," (Approved May 14, 
1903. In force July 1, 1903.) said 
district was empowered to make use 
of the "Calumet Feeder" and to con- 
struct a channel across said Illinois 
and Michigan Canal; and 

Whereas, Said act provides that 
m case any part or parts of said 
canal shall be abandoned through 
such work they shall be filled by 
said district at its expense to pre- 
vent the spread of pestilence and 
disease; and further provides, that 
as to all such abandoned parts the 
sand district shall comply with the 
provisions of the Acts of Congress 
of March 22, 1822 and March 2, 1827 



by which acts certain lands were 
granted by the United States of 
America to the State of Illinois, for 
the purpose of aiding in the con- 
struction of said canal which, when 
completed, was forever to remain a 
public highway for the free use of 
said government; now therefore, 

Resolved, That the General As- 
sembly of the State of Illinois be 
and it is hereby requested to con- 
sider the present condition of said 
canal between the points named, and 
to take such steps as may be neces- 
sary to bring about the abandonment 
of said canal, in order that the 
same, when filled, may be put to a 
better public use, such as a boule- 
vard between the City of Chicago 
and the City of Joliet; 

Resolved, further, that the two 
special committees of this council 
now having this matter under con- 
sideration be authorized, with the 
co-operation of la committee from 
the Sanitary District of Chicago, to 
convey this request to the attention 
of his Excellency, Governor Edward 
F. Dunne and to the General As- 
sembly.

that confronts the City of Chicago. 
In the belief that a conference of 
men of affairs, who also are large 
employers of labor, and an investi- 
gation by them still further into the 
subject will be productive of re- 
sults in helping to solve this prob- 
lem, and acting in accordance with 
the terms of a resolution adopted 
by your honorable body at its meet- 
ing of December 28, 1914, I have the 
honor to appoint as members of an 
Industrial Commission the follow- 
ing: 

Prof. Charles R. Henderson, John 
E. Merrion, R. T. Crane, Jr., W. L.

To the Honorable, the City Council: 
Gentlemen — I transmit herewith 
a communication together with a 
resolution from the Chairman of the 
Committee on Ways and Means of 
I the Chicago Public Library, en- 
dorsing a bill, copy of which is also 
attached hereto, increasing the tax 
for the Public Library from 6/10 
of a mill to one mill on the dollar, 
which amount is subject to the 
scaling process of the Juul Law. 

The object of the bill is to give

creased demands upon the institu- 
tion. 

I respectfully recommend the

The following communication,

tee on License: 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, Jan. 11, 1915. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — In the early part of 
last year your Honorable Body 
passed an ordinance designating 
certain requirements as necessary 
on the part of applicants for the 
position of public motor vehicle 
operators. These requirements, if 
enforced, would make it impossible 
for the city to renew the licenses of 
a number of taxicab operators who 
have been operating cars without 
the slightest trouble for a good 
many years. Most of these men, 
formerly cab drivers, have learned 
to operate taxicabs, have purchased 
cabs, and, if deprived of the priv- 
ilege of operating taxicabs, will be 
unable to secure any other work. 

I would suggest the advisability 
of so amending the ordinance as to 
make it apply to future applicants 
for licenses, but permitting present 
holders of licenses, who have shown 
by their work their ability to op- 
erate taxicabs with safety to the 
public, to secure renewal of their 
licenses without being subjected to 
a physical examination. 

I would respectfully suggest the 
reference of this communication to 
your Committee on License, with

Gentlemen- — The Department of 
Public Service recommends, in or-

curves in the four quadrants at the 
intersection of Clark and 12th 
streets and in both the northeast 
and northwest quadrants on 5th 
avenue and 12th street, cost of the 
additional facilities thus afforded, 
if any, to be borne by the Chicago 
City Railway Company and the 
Chicago Railways Company in such 
proportion as their franchise rights 
may determine.

ALSO, 

The following communication, 
which was referred to the Perma- 
nent Charter Commission: 

Law Department,] 
Chicago, Jan. 7, 191 5. ( 
In re Right of City to Compel Abut- 
ting Owners to Clean Snow and 
Ice from Sidewalks. 



To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen. — On December 28, 
1914, the following resolution was 
passed by your honorable body: 
'"Resolved, That the Corpora- 
tion Counsel be and he is hereby 
directed to render an opinion to 
the City Council as to the city's 
ipowers to require owners or oc- 
cupants of buildings or vacant 
lots adjoining any streets to keep 
the walks clean of snow or ice, 
or make them otherwise safe for 
pedestrians, and in the event that 
such power is lacking to suggest 
the necessary state legislation." 
In response to the order contained 
in the above resolution we submit 
a list of authorities showing what 
the attitude of our courts is on the 
question propounded. The doctrine 
announced in these cases has been 
so often re-afTirmed by them that 
it would seem as though they are so 
far committed to it as to preclude 
the enactment of any law which can 
be enforced against abutting prop- 
erty owners generally to do away, 
with this evil. Since it conflicts 
with some opinions rendered by 
other eminent tribunals, however, 
we undertake to point out -a way in 
which the question in a somewhat 
modified form may be again raised 
with the possibility of a more fa- 
vorable result. 

The principle that a public bur- 
den cannot be imposed on a private 
individual, on which our Supreme 
Court relies in holding that a muni- 
cipality cannot compel a lot owner 
to keep snow and ice from the side- 
walk, was laid down in a number of 
decisions involving the same general 
subject-matter in some very early 
cases, but it was not until 1878 that 
the precise question was decided, 
in Gridley vs. City of Bloomifigton. 
88 111. 554. In that case, the court 
passed on the question presented by 
the resolution, and it has consist- 
ently adhered to its position from 
that time to this. We quote the 
following from the decision: 



January 11, 1915 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



2753 



"The public had an easement 
over the street in front of the lot 
occupied and owned by defendant, 
arid it makes no difference, so far 
as this decision is concerned, 
whether the fefe of the street 
passed by the plat and dedication 
to the corporation, or whether it 
remained in the original pro- 
prietor. It is plain defendant has 
no other interest in the street in 
front of his property than any 
other citizen of the municipality. 
The same is true of the sidewalk. 
It is a part of the street set 
apart for the exclusive use of 
persons traveling on foot, and is 
as much under the control of the 
municipal government as the 
street itsellr. The owner of the 
adjacent lot is under no more ob- 
ligation to keefp the sidewalk free 
from obstructions, than he is the 
street in front of his premises. 
He may not himself obstruct 
either so as to impede travel on 
foot or in carriages. , It will be 
conceded the citizen is not bound 
to keep the street in front of his 
premises free from snow or any- 
thing else that might impede 
travel; then, upon what principle 
can he be fined for not removing 
snow or other obstruction from 
the sidewalk in which he has no 
interest other than what he has 
in common with all other persons 
resident in the city? * * * It was 
expressly decided by this, court, 
in City of Ottawa v. Spencer, 40 
111. 211, that local improvements 
of either sidewalks or streets can 
not be compelled, under the gen- 
eral police power. The legislature 
must afford the necessary power 
for constructing all needful im- 
provements, subject to constitu- 
tional limitations; and when one 
mode of making such improve- 
ments is sanctioned by the con- 
stitution, no other can be adopted. 
"Keeping streets and side- 
walks in repair, and free from ob- 
structions that impede travel or 
render it dangerous, is referable 



to the same power as for con- 
structing improvements. The 
sidewalk, as' was declared in the 
case cited, is as much a public 
highway, free for the use of all, 
as the street itself, and, upon 
principle, it follows, the citizen 
can not be laid under obligations, 
under our laws, to keep it free 
from obstructions in front of his 
property at his own expense, any 
more than the street itself, either 
by the exercise of the police 
power or by fines and penalties 
imposed by ordinance, or by di- 
rect legislative action." 

Gridley vs. City of Bloomington, 
88 111. 554. 

In the case of Citu of Chicago vs. 
O'Brien, 111 111. 532, it was con- 
tended that the Bloomington decis- 
ion was based on incorrect grounds, 
and counsel for the city undertook 
to show that the ordinance of the 
City of Chicago which was before 
the court was a proper police reg- 
ulation. But the court re-affirmed 
the above decision, and among other 
things, said, on page 536 : 

"Even the police power, com- 
prehensive as it is, has some lim- 
itations. It can not be held to 
sanction the taking of private 
property for public use without 
making just compensation there- 
for, however essential this might 
be, for the time, to the public 
health, safety, etc. And upon 
like principle, a purely public 
burden can not be laid upon a 
private individual, except as au- 
thorized in cases to exercise the 
right of eminent domain, or by 
virtue of proper proceedings to 
enforce special assessments or 
special taxation. * * * Undoubt- 
edly, the allowing of ice and snow 
to remain upon a sidewalk may 
be declared a nuisance, but it 
must be a public nuisance, and 
one, too, not caused by the act of 
the adajcent property holder, but 
solely by the action of the ele- 
ments. No one questions the right 



2754 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 11, 1915 



of the municipality to prevent 
such use of property and such ac- 
tion of the citizen as may be in- 
jurious to the public; but the ad- 
jacent lot owner has no owner- 
ship or control of the adjacent 
street, and this ordinance seeks 
to control the action of no one 
while on the street. The lot 
owner is held responsible solely 
and simply for the accident of 
owning property near the nui- 
sance. He may have no more ac- 
tual control of the street, or 
necessity to use it, than if his 
property were .miles away; still, 
he is held responsible for a result 
he could not control, and to the 
production of which he did not 
even theoretically contribute. The 
gist of the whole argument is 
merely that it is convenient to 
hold ihim responsible. It is not 
perceived why it would not be 
equally convenient to hold him 
responsible for the entire police 
government of so much of the 
street." 

City of Chicago vs. O'Brien, 111 
111. 532. 

In the same volume appears the 
case of City of Chicago vs. Crosby, 
88 III. 538, exipressly re-afflrming 
the doctrine laid down above. 

It has been suggesed that the 
above cases are not recent ones, and 
that penhaps the views of the court 
have been modified by later devel- 
opments and a more modern trend 
of thought. But there is no foun- 
dation for this idea. 

In City of Chicago vs. Union 
Traction Co., 199 111. 259, the court 
speaks approvingly of both of the 
decisions from which we have taken 
excerpts, quotes from them, and 
adds, on page 266, the following: 
"The doctrine of these cases is 
unquestionably sound. * * * The 
owner of property abutting on a 
street has no interest in the street 
of the city, as a street, other than 
that possessed by every other cit- 
izen. He may be required, by 



way of special assessments or 
special taxation laid in pursuance 
of law, to make special contribu- 
tions to defray the cost of con- 
structing a sidewalk or improving 
the street, but this is upon the 
theory the value of his property 
is enhanced thereby. The bur- 
den, however, of keeping the 
sidewalk or street clear of snow, 
ice and other accumulations is a 
public burden, and no obligation 
is imposed upon the lot owner to 
perform that which it is the duty 
of the municipality, as the repre- 
sentative of the public to perform. 
The lot owner has no special 
right, benefit or interest in the 
stree^t in front of his premises. 

City of Chicago vs. Union Trac- 
tion Co., 199 111. 259. 

It will be noted that in all of these 
cases the court bases its rulings on 
the constitutional rights of the 
abutting owners and not on any 
question of delegation of power or 
the proper mode of the exercise of 
a power. It holds in each instance 
that the police power of the state 
does not include the power to com-, 
pel abutting owners to remove snow 
and ice placed upon the public 
thoroughfares by natural causes. 

The general doctrine laid down in 
the above cases, as applied to sim- 
ilar questions was passed on in the 
same manner in City of Chicago vs. . 
McDonald, 111 111. App. 436, in Far- 
son vs. Fogg, 205 111. 326, and in the 
very late case of Koy vs. City of 
Chicago, 263 111. 122, decided in 
April, 1914. 

In the case last mentioned, where 
the court upheld the city's power 
to regulate the sale of milk, it dis- 
tinguished the line of cases that we 
have presented from the one under 
consideration, saying that in Grid- 
ley vs. Bloomington and Chicago vs. 
O'Brien "it was held that the bur- 
den of keeping sidewalks free from 
obstructions by snow could not be 
laid upon the private owners of ad- 



January 11, 1915 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



2755 



joining property," but that in the 
case before it the principle had no 
application because the sale of milk 
was a business directly concerning 
the public health, which the city 
had the right to regulate. 

We eould cite a number of decis- 
ions besides the above, but feel that 
we have sufficiently demonstrated 
that the law is clear in this state 
that the municipality has no power 
to pass a general ordinance of the 
kind proposed and that the police 
power of the state cannot be in- 
voked for this purpose. The legis- 
lature is as powerless as the City 
Council in this respect. 

On the other hand, as stated 
above, there is abundant authority 
in other jurisdictions directly in 
conflict with these decisions. 

Dillon, in his work on Municipal 
Corporations (5th Ed., Sec. 713) ex- 
presses a contrary view in the fol- 
lowing language: 

"Under a general power to make 
'needful and salutary by-laws,' a 
city ordinance of Boston, requir- 
ing the tenant or occupant, or, in 
case there shall be no tenant, the 
owners of buldings bordering on 
certain streets, to clear the snow 
from the sideiualks adjoining 
their respective buildings, is rea- 
sonable and valid. It was ob- 
jected against this ordinance that 
it violated the fundamental 
maxim that all burdens and taxes 
laid upon the people for the pub- 
lic good shall be equal. The ob- 
jection was overruled. And it 
was justly regarded by the court 
as in the nature of a police reg- 
ulation, requiring a duty to be 
performed highly salutary and 
advantageous to the citizens of a 
• populous and closely built city, 
and imposed upon the persons 
named because they are so sit- 
uated that they can promptly and 
conveniently perform it; and it is 
laid not upon a few, but upon a 
numerous class, and equally upon 
all who are within the descrip- 



tion composing the class and who 
commonly derive a peculiar ben- 
efit from the- duty required. It 
w'ould doubtless be otherwise if 
the ordinance arbitrarily im- 
posed this duty upon the mechan- 
ics or merchants, or any other 
class of citizens between whose 
convenience and the labor re- 
quired there is no natural rela- 
tion." 

In support of the above text the 
following Massachusetts cases are 
cited: 

In re Goddard, 16 Pick. 504. 
Union Railway Co. vs. Cambridge, 
11 Allen, 287. 

Kirby vs. Boylston Market Ass'n, 
14 Gray. 249. 

In the state of New York similar 
ordinances have been upbeld. In 
one case the Illinois doctrine is ex- 
pressly refuted. We quote at length 
from same, in order to show the 
theory on which it is based. 

"If this power of local legisla- 
tion can be conferred upon the 
largest city in the state, it can 
also be conferred upon the small- 
est village that the legislature 
sees fit to incorporate. In this 
latitude the accumulation of snow 
upon sidewalks in large quantities 
is a matter of course. Its pres- 
ence retards travel, interrupts 
business and interferes with the 
safety and convenience of all 
classes. It is a frequent cause of 
accidents and thus affects the 
property of every person who is 
liable to assessment to pay the 
damages caused by a failure to 
remove it. But how is it possi- 
ble for the authorities of a large 
city, with many hundred miles 
of streets, to remove the snow in 
time to prevent injury to those 
who have the right to travel upon 
the sidewalks unless they can re- 
quire the owners and occupants 
of adjacent property to remove 
it? Every man can eonveniently 
and promptly attend to that w^hich 
is in front of his own door, and 



2756

it is both reasonable and neces- 
sary that he should be compelled 
to do so. We think that the ordi- 
nance under consideration is 
valid; that it conflicts with no 
provision of the constitution, and 
that it Js the duty of the courts 
to enforce it. 

"In reaching this conclusion, 
we have not overlooked the case 
of Gridley vs. Blooming ton, 88 111. 
554; 30 Am. Rep. 566, but have 
given it the attention to which it 
is entitled by the high standing 
of the court that decided it. The 
argument upon which the opin- 
ion in that case rests is that as 
the fee of the street was in the 
corporation and the sidewalk was 
a part of the street, the lot owner 
had no more interest in the side- 
walk in front of his premises than 
any other citizen of the munici- 
pality, because it was set apart 
for the exclusive use of .persons 
traveling on foot and was as much 
under the control of the munici- 
pal government as the street 
itself. 

"We are unable to yield to this 
reasoning, because it overlooks 
not only the public safety and 
general convenience, but also the 
peculiar interest that every 
owner or occupant of real prop- 
erty has in a clean sidewalk in 
front of his own premises. What- 
ever adds to the usefulness of a 
sidewalk adds both to the rental 
and permanent value of the ad- 
jacent lot." 

Village of Carthage vs. Fred- 
erick, 122 N. Y. 268. 

To the same effect are People vs. 
Mattimore, 45 Hun. (N. Y.) ^ 448, 
and Taylor vs. Yonkers, 105 N. Y. 
202. 

The Supreme Court of Nebraska, 
in City of Linvoln vs. Jonesch, 63 
Neb. 707, upheld the right of the 
city to impose such an obligation 
on property owners, cites numerous 
authorities for and against the 



validity of the clause of the charter 
conferring the power, and says: 
"Our conclusion * * * is that 
the provision of the Lincoln char- 
ter above set out was enacted for 
the convenience and safety of the 
public and is unaffected by con- 
stitutional limitations upon the 
power of taxation." 
This diversity of opinion in dif- 
ferent jurisdictions explains why 
ordinances of this kind are enacted 
and enforced in some cities while 
not in others. 

In regard to suggesting state leg- 
islation, we call your attention to 
the fourteenth clause in the section 
delegating powers to the city, which 
authorizes it "to require the owner 
or occupant of any premises to 
keep the sidewalks in front of, or 
along the same, free from snow and 
other obstructions." It will there- 
fore be seen that, if it were not for 
the adverse decisions we have quot- 
ed from, the city's power would be 
ample. 

Some slight relief might be af- 
forded by an ordinance or a series 
of ordinances which would have for 
their object the regulation of side- 
walks so as to keep them free from 
snow and ice where abutting own- 
ers make use of a portion of same 
or of the space above or underneath 
them. But such ordinances at best 
would be but skirting around the 
outer edges of the evil which you 
are seeking to control. 

The only recommendation we can 
offer, under the circumstances, is 
to suggest that an eifort be made 
to secure the passage of an act of 
the legislature which wilh provide 
for the cleaning of snow and ice 
from a path of limited width over 
walks that have been im^proved with 
permanent sidewalks in cities or 
villages of more than 60,000 popu- 
lation. Such an act would differ 
from the provisions of the Cities 
and Villages Act, in that it limits 
the matter to walks where the 
traffic is great.

While it may be said that the 
principle involved is substantially 
the same whether an abutting 
owner or occupant has to clean the 
whole walk or only a path, it may 
be that the court would not regard 
it so much in the light -of a public 
burden where the individual is not 
required to sweep or clean the 
whole sidewalk, but is only com- 
pelled to render passage before his 
own premises safe in a place where 
there is a peculiar advantage to the 
property in question. It is possible 
that a court may be persuaded to 
vield such a concession to the pub- 
lic convenience without recedmg 
from the general constitutional 
principle that has been the obstacle 
to sucli legislation in the past.

Law Department,] 
Cpiicago, January 11, 1915.} 
In Re Annexation of Portion of City 

of Evanston. 
To the Honorable, the City Council 

of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On December 14, 
1914, your Honorable Body directed 
the Comptroller and the Corpora- 
tion Counsel to take up the question 
of the adjustment of all revenue 
matters relating to the annexation 
of the territory of the City of 
Evanston lying south of Calvary 
cemetery and east of the right-of- 
way of the Chicago, Evanston & 
Lake Superior Railway Company, 
including questions of indebtedness 
and taxation, with the municipal 
officers of the City of Evanston, for 
the purpose of arriving at an ad- 



justment in the matter, and to re- 
port the same to the City Council 
as soon as practicable. 

Acting in pursuance of the di- 
rection contained in the said order, 
we have undertaken to arrive at 
such an adjustment as is contem- 
plated by the statute in such cases; 
but we found that the final deter- 
mination of this matter must rest 
with the corporate authorities in- 
volved and cannot be consummated 
by even a tentative arrangement so 
far as the Comptroller and the Cor- 
poration Counsel of this city are 
concerned. We apprehend that the 
officers of the City of Evanston 
would be in practically the same 
situation if the figures we submit 
herewith were presented to them. 

We stated in the letter transmit- 
ting the ordinance providing for 
annexation that the statute con- 
templated that annexation should 
be effected by consent of the City 
Council of Evanston and by an or- 
dinance of the City of Chicago an- 
nexing the territory, passed in pur- 
suance of such consent, and that 
the adjustment of revenue matters, 
including property rights, questions 
of indebtedness and tax matters, 
between the municipalities affected, 
would then proceed in accordance 
with the provisions of the statute, 
and, if an adjustment could not be 
arrived at, the Circuit or County 
Court could be appealed to; and we 
called attention to the fact that the 
ordinance of the City of Evanston 
giving consent presented difficul- 
ties to be overcome which would 
not arise if the statCite had been 
strictly followed and uncondi- 
tional consent had been given. At 
the same time we stated that these 
difficulties were not of such a na- 
ture as to interpose an insuperable 
obstacle to annexation. We had in 
mind the difficulty that would be 
met in agreeing on an adjustment 
which will be satisfactory to all 
parties before annexation was ef- 
fected, a difficulty that would not 



758 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 11, 1915 



be met in case annexation was 
effected and the adjustment con- 
templated by statute then arranged. 

We present herewith figures 
which we arrived at by a strict ob- 
servance of the provisions of the 
statute, and it now remains for the 
City Council to arrive at an under- 
standing based on these figures. 

Section 8 of the Act of 1889, 
which prescribes the manner in 
which the adjustment should be 
made in such a case as this, pro- 
vides that the proporfionato share 
of any indebtedness, contract oj> 
liability of the City of Evansfon, 
according to the taxable property 
in the territory to be disconnected 
as the same existed immediately 
before annexation, and the propor- 
tionate share of such indebtedness 
of any school district or township 
involved, shall be assumed and paid 
by the City of Chicago, and, on the 
other hand, the City of Chicago 
shall be vested with the title ana 
ownership of all public and school 
property in the annexed territory 
and shall be entitled to a division 
of the public property of the City 
of Evanston and any such school 
district or township in the same 
proportion, subject to such reduc- 
tion as may be made on account of 
public property situated in the ter- 
ritory. The City of Chicago, of 
course, in making such adjustment 
would divide the liability of prop- 
erty received, as the case may be, 
between the city as a corporation 
and the city as trustee for the 
schools. 

Upon inquiry, we found that 
there was no public property lo- 
cated in the territory which it is 
proposed to annex. We also found 
that the City of Evanston and the 
school districts involved had a con- 
siderable amount of property, cash 
and rights to uncollected taxes, 
over and above all indebtedness ex- 
isting at the present time. It neces- 
sarily follows that if the method 
prescribed in the statute for ad- 



I justing these matters is pursued, 
the City of Evanston and these 
school districts will have to pay to 
the City of Chicago and the Board 
of Education the share to which 
this territory would be entitled. 

We have figured out the amounts 
so due, but we do not feel at lib- 
erty to make any proposition to the 
officers of the City of Evanston or 
the officers of the school districts 
involved which is not based on the 
precise amount estimated in each 
case as the value of the property 
which this territory is entitled to. 
On the other hand, provision is 
made in the statute for an adjust- 
ment by the corporate authorities 
by agreement, provided that each 
shall pass an ordinance or resolu- 
tion reciting the amount thereof to 
be paid, which resolution duly cer- 
tified in each case would after- 
wards be filed with the County 
Clerk and the same would be final 
and conclusive. 

The computation was made by 
Messrs. H. G. Westphaln and C. F. 
Williams, accountants of the Comp- 
troller's office, on the basis of as- 
sessed valuations of the year 1914. 

These accountants procured their 
balance sheet for the City of 
Evanston from the trial balance of 
that city of November 30, 1914. 
They included the present worth of 
interest and bonds which are un- 
paid and not yet due. They also 
included the 1914 taxes certified for 
collection. The real estate was 
taken at the book figure, which is 
based on the appraisal of 1901. An 
appraisal at this time would prob- 
ably exceed those figures. 

The valuation of the Evanston 
Township High School was taken 
from a report made by its secretary 
to the Department of the Interior 
under date of June 30, 1914'. -The 
valuation of the property of School 
District No. 76 was made by the 
appraisal of the secretary of this 
district which he had made pre- 
viously for the School Board of 
said district. The figures for school 



January 11, 1915 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



2759 



buildings and furniture were made 
in ,an appraisal of 1908, excepting 
one school, recently completed, for 
which the cost was taken as the 
value. 

The difference between the fig- 
ures presented and the figures as of 
the day of annexation may be com- 
puted if it is deemed advisable to 
narrow down the figureis to the ex- 
act date. If that is to be done, 
there will also have to be some al- 
lowance made with relation to cash 
on hand which necessarily varies 
from time to time and may show 
considerable difference from the 
balance sheet of December 1, 1914. 
Therefore, if the exact figures are 
to be computed as of the day of 
annexation there will necessarily 
have to be some changes. 

It was found by the accountants 
that the entire taxable property of 
the City of Evanston, according to 
the assessed valuations of 1913, in- 
cluding real estate, personal prop- 
erty and railroad property, was 
$12,983,426, that the entire taxable 
property in the district to be an- 
nexed to Chicago was $172,524.85, 
and that therefore this territory 
was to be credited with 1.3288 per 
cent of the net assets of the City of 
Evanston. The Evanston Town- 
ship High School district is co-ex- 
tensive with the City of Evanston, 
and therefore the figures for this 
high school district are the same as 
for the city, and the same percent- 
age of the high school district's net 
assets belong to the territory to be 
annexed and would be due to the 
Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago, if these figures are to be 
taken as a basis of the agreement 
between the municipalities. The 
accountants also found that the en- 
tire taxable property of school dis- 
trict No. 76, according to the as- 
sessed valuations of 1914, includ- 
ing real estate, personal and rail- ^ 
road property, was $3,569,362, that 
the entire taxable property in the 
district to be annexed to Chicago, 



which is located in said school dis- 
trict No. 76, was. $172,524,85, as 
above stated, and that therefore 
this territory was to be credited 
with 4.8335 per cent of the net as- 
sets of ischool district No. 76, and 
the same would be due to the Board 
of Education of the City of Chicago, 
if these figures are to be taken as 
the basis of the agreement between 
the municipalities. 

The accountants found that the 
assets of the City of Evanston as 
of December 1, 1914, including 
taxes certified for collection but hot 
yet collected, amounted to $1,645,- 
826.04, and that the proportion due. 
the territory in question was $21,- 
869.87. As against this, they found 
that the liabilities of tlie City of 
Evanston for bonds and interest 
figured at present worth, were 
$325,796.03 and its other liabilities 
amount to $137,569.31, of which the 
proportion to be charged to this 
territory was $4,329.20 and $1,- 
828.03, respectively, leaving a net 
balance in favor of this territory of 
$15,712.64. 

It was next found that the assets 
of the Evanston Township High 
School District as of December 1, 
1914, including taxesi certified for 
collection but not yet collected, 
amounted to $294,139.39 and that 
the proportion due this territory 
was $3^908.52. As against this the 
liability of said district for bonds 
outstanding and interest on same 
amounted to $6,105, of which the 
proportion to be charged to this 
territory was $81.12, leaving a net 
balance in favor of this territory 
of $3,827.40. 

The accountants next found that 
the assets of school district No. 76 
as of January 4, 1915, including 
taxes certified for collection but not 
yet collected, amounted to $390,- 
689, and that the proportion due 
this territory was $18,883.92. As 
against this they found that the 
liabilities of the said district for 



2760 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 11, 1915 



bonds and interest were $144,500 
and $70,278.75, respectively, which 
figured at present worth amount to 
$68,352.56, of which the proportion 
to be charged to this territory was 
$8,137.31, leaving a net balance in 
favor of this territory of $10,746-61. 
The adjustment if made in strict 
accordance with the statute, there- 
fore, would be as follows: 

That the City of Evanston should 
pay the City of Chicago the sum of 
$15,712.64, that the Evanston 
Township High School District 
should pay the -Chicago Board of 
Education $3,827.40, and that 
school district No. 76 should pay 
the Chicago Board of Education 
$10,746.61. The total amount from 
all three of these corporate authori- 
ties would therefore be $30,286.65. 
In order that the committee which 
has the matter in charge may fully 
understand the figures we present, 
we transmit herewith a schedule of 
assessed valuations of 1914 for the 
City of Evanston, school district No. 
76, and the Evanston Township 
High School District, ' and three 
balance sheets covering the mat- 
ters set forth above. The details in 
regard to same are in the posses- 
sion of the accountants and can be 
examined by the committee when- 
ever called for. 

For the purpose of enabling the 
committee to take the next step 
towards annexation, we have pre- 
pared and forward herewith an or- 
dinance agreeing to such adjust- 
ment, for submission to the Gitj- 
Council of the City of Chicago, and 
a similar ordinance for submission 
to the City Council of the City of 
Evanston, also resolutions agreeing 
to such .adjustment to be submitted 
respectively to the Board of Edu- 
cation of the City of Chicago, the 
Board of Trustees of the Evanston 
Township High School District and 
the Board of Trustees of school dis- 
trict No. 76. If, after consideration 
of the matter, it is decided that the 
fignrf'is in the said ordinances and 



resolutions shall be altered, to make 
same exact as of the date of an- 
nexation, that can readily be done. 

While the status of the situation 
is such that it is possible for an- 
nexation to proceed without the 
School Trustees taking action in 
advance, nevertheless, we consider 
it safer to follow this rule because 
under the statute any one of these 
bodies, or, in fact, even a taxpayer, 
might bring the matter into court 
for adjustment if not finally agreed 
upon. 

We have caused additional 
copies of this letter to be prepared, 
which can be submitted to the va- 
rious corporate authorities along 
with the ordinances or resolutions, 
as the case may be, so that the po- 
sition of the city with respect to 
this adjustment may be fully un- 
derstood by each of said parties. 

You will observe that in each of 
the ordinances and resolutions we 
have made provision for the pay- 
ment of one-twelfth of the taxes of 
1915 collected in the said territory 
to be paid to the corporate bodies 
in which the same is now located. 
This is so fixed on the theory that 
annexation will take place about 
February 1, 1915. This particular 
feature of the agreement may be 
subject to further adjustment on 
account of the uncertainty of the 
date of annexation and on account 
of the possibility of the fiscal years 
of the various taxing bodies not co- 
inciding. You will readily see that 
these ordinances and resolutions 
are necessarily tentative, because 
we cannot fix all these matters pre- 
cisely until the various corporate 
authorities are ready to take action. 
They can, however, be changed to 
meet the situation on a moment's 
notice. 

So far as we have been able to 
ascertain, there is only one contract 
which will have to be assumed by 
the city in connection with this an- 
nexation, and that is a contract for 
street lighting with the Public 



JaouaiT 11. 1915 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



2761 



Service Company of Northern Illi- 
nois, which still has a period of five 
or six years to run. Information at 
hand indicates that this contract is 
advantageous to the eity and will 
not result in a loss to itdf carried out. 

In ca&e the ordinances and reso- 
lutions which we submit herewith 
are passed by the various corporate 
authorities for which they were 
prepared, the City Council of the 
City of Chicago will be ready to 
pass th^e annexation ordinance 
which is now pending. 

A limitation of ninety days was 
placed on acceptance by the city in 
the ordinance consenting to annex- 
ation passed by the City Council of 
the City of Evanston. That ordi- 
nance was passed on November 17, 
1914; consequently final action an- 
nexing this territory will have to 
be taken by the City Council of the 
City of Chicago before February 
15, 1915, otherwise the matter will 
lapse. In order to be effective, the 
annexation ordinance must be 
passed by a vote of two-thirds of 
the City Council. 

In case the annexation ordinance 
is pa^ed, all matters relating to 
fut^ure taxation will ;be adjusted 
through the medium of the County 
Clerk and the State Auditor of Pub- 
lic Accounts. The various corpor- 
ate authorities will submit and file 
with the County Clerk copies of the 
ordinances and resolutions passed 
by them, and the County Clerk will 
thereupon certify same to the State 
Auditor lof Public Accounts and will 
thereafter extend the taxes in the 
annexed territory in accordance 
with the new 'order of things.

Communications from the Mayor, 
Comptroller, Commissioner of 
Public Works and All Other 
City Officers, Departments and 
Branches of the City Government. 

His Honor the Mayor submitted 
the following communication, which 
was, together with the communica- 
tion and book transmitted there- 
with, referred to the Committee on 
Finance : 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, January 15, 1915. ( 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I have the honor 
to transmit herewith a communica- 
tion from the Chicago Association 
of Commerce, transmitting a book 
entitled "The Town Hall of the 
Nation'' and requesting that the 
City Council by ordinance provide 
for the submission to the people in 
the Spring Election of a proposition 
to issue bonds in the sum of 
$1,250,000 for the purpose of de- 
fraying the expenses of constructing 
this convention hall. 

It is not necessary to discuss at 
any length the necessity of pro- 
viding an adequate convention hall 

to c a [■>;■' for the more than four 



hundred conventions annually held 
in this city, nor to dilate on the 
importance to this city of continu- 
ing to attract these conventions and 
the very considerable business in 
all lines which they bring. 

Chicago, because of its central 
location, for years has been re- 
garded as pre-eminently the con- 
vention city of the nation, and this 
in spite of the fact that no adequate 
meeting place has ever been pro- 
vided locally to care for these con- 
ventions. By the construction of 
the proposed hall Chicago would 
not only have the location with 
which to attract conventions, but 
would also be able to provide the 
most magnificent and commodious 
meeting place of any city in the 
nation. The proposed hall will care 
for a maximum of 32,000 seats, 
practically four times the capacity 
of the Coliseum, which is to-day 
the only possible meeting place to 
be found in a central location in 
the city. 

It will be necessary to secure the 
consent of the federal authorities in 
order to construct this building. 
The federal authorities so far have 
shown an unwillingness to give 
their approval for structures in the 
outer harbor district which do not 
in some measure at least care for 
interests connected with navigation. 
For this reason it is proposed that 
the convention hall shall be con- 
structed over a first floor level, 
which will be devoted to freight 
warehouse purposes, to be used in 
connection with the piers to be 
constructed in Outer Harbor Dis- 
trict No. 1. There is nothing in 
this use which would in any way 
conflict with the devotion of the 
space above the first floor level to 
a convention hall. Engineers can 
make such arrangements that 
neither use will be incompatible 
with the other. 

The book transmitted herewith 
discusses the convention hall fea- 
ture at length. There is another 
use to which this building could be

assigned, not mentioned in the book, 
which to my mind is of almost 
equal importance, namely, that by 
the construction of this building 
facilities will be provided to re- 
establish in Chicago an autumn ex- 
position for the Middle States, 
along the lines of the exposition 
held on the Lake Front, which 
residents of Chicago of some thirty 
years back will recall as bringing to 
the city every fall thousands of 
visitors from a district about Chi- 
cago with a radius of several hun- 
dred miles. Anything done by the 
city to attract visitors to Chicago, 
in its final analysis, benefits all 
classes of the citizenship. 

Personally, I do not believe that 
any scheme has been proposed for 
years which promises greater and 
more lasting benefits than this 
proposition of constructing in a 
central location a splendid building 
which would not only serve to 
house any convention which may be 
held in the city, but which would 
also provide adequate space for an 
autumn exposition, which could be 
made to provide education and 
amusement to thousands of visitors. 

For these reasons I respectfully 
recommend that suitable provision 
be made to submit the issuance of 
the necessary bonds at the coming 
election, and would suggest that 
this communication be referred to 
your Committee on Finance in order 
that the proper ordinance may be 
prepared and submitted to your 
Honorable Body for its approval. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed; Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor.

The following communication, 
which was, together with the com- 
munications transmitted therewith, 
ordered published and referred to

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, January 15, 1915. \ 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 
Gentlemen — I have the honor to 
transmit herewith a communication 
from the Commissioner of Health 
in reference to the relations be- 
tween the Department of Health 
and the Board of Supervising En- 
gineers, and directing attention to 
the failure of the latter to give the 
Health Department assistance in 
enforcement of health ordinances. 
I would respectfully recommend 
the reference of the subject to your 
Committee on Local Transportation. 

Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

The following communications 
were transmitted with the foregoing 
communication : 

Department of Health,] 
Chicago, January 15, 1915. ( 
Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor, 

City of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — I have several times 
complained before the Committee 
on liOcal Transportation that the 
Board of Supervising Engineers had 
not given the Health Department 
effective co-operation in securing 
compliance with the provisions of 
the city ordinance providing for 
the comfort and safety of pas- 
sengers. 

I now learn that as a consequence 
of such complaint a letter, a copy 
of which is enclosed, was addressed 
to the Committee on Local Trans- 
portation by the Chairman of the 
Board of Supervising Engineers. 
As some of the statements con- 
tained in the letter are at variance 
with what I think can be shown to 
be the facts, I thought it was proper 
to bring the matter to your atten- 
tion with a statement showing the 
position of this department. 

A considerable portion of Mr. 
Arnold's letter is taken up with the 
recitation of events occurring more 
than five years ago and of no pos- 



2828 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 15, 1915. 



sible relevancy to the subject of 
my complaint. 

Even as history, moreover, at 
least one statement is inaccurate. 
I allude to the statement: "'During 
the rehabilitation period the plans 
and specifications covering the 
manufacture of cars were prepared 
by the Board under the Chief En- 
gineer of the Work, and care was 
taken that the heating provisions 
were such that they complied with 
the provisions of the 1907 or- 
dinance." 

If Mr. Arnold had said that "the 
intention . was that th§>y should 
comply with the 1907 ordinance" I 
would not dispute it, but it is a 
matter of common knowledge that 
the cars to which he refers never 
have complied and never can com- 
ply with the 1907 ordinance. 

Two facts prove this : . 

1. We have successfully prose- 
cuted several hundred suits against 
these cars for non-compliance. 

2. The companies and the Board 
of Engineers made a strenuous and 
successful fight to have the tem- 
perature requirements reduced 
when the consolidation ordinance 
was drafted. 

Coming now to more recent mat- 
ters, I wish to reaffirm the state- 
ments made before the Committee 
on Local Transportation: 

1. That the Board of Supervising 
Engineers has permitted the com- 
pany to purchase large numbers of 
cars without giving the Health 
Department any opportunity to look 
into the ventilation equipment, 
although that department is 
charged with the responsibility of 
seeing that the cars are ventilated 
after they are in use. 

2. That in the one instance in 
which Mr. Arnold asked and ob- 
tained from me the approval of a 
certain set of cars, the Board per- 
mitted Mr. Fleming, acting, I pre- 
sume, in his capacity as the en- 
gineer of the company, to reduce 



the intake capacity without advis- 
ing me of this fact. 

3. That when we asked to be 
supplied with the blue prints of the 
last batch of cars ordered they 
made the surprising statement that 
they did not have the plans, and 
referred us to Mr. Fleming, and that 
Mr. Fleming ignored our letters 
asking for the plans. 

4. That the Board has not made 
the slightest attempt to have the 
older cars equipped to comply with 
'the heating provisions of the con- 
solidation ordinance. 

Mr. Arnold says: "The 200 cars 
built by the Chicago City Railway 
Company in 1913 were equipped 
with a ventilating apparatus sug- 
gested and approved by the Health 
Commissioner." If Mr. Arnold re- 
fers to the 200 cars now running on|;{ 
the Indiana avenue line, I am pre- 
pared to prove that the equipment 
shown on the plans is not the 
equipment built into the cars. 

Mr. Arnold states the Health De- 3 
partment approved "the ventilating V 
apparatus applied to the 125 near- }• 
side cars." The facts are, and the \ 
record shows it, that the near-side 
cars were condemned by the Health 
Department and formal notice to 
that effect was served on the com- 
pany, and that after that the com- 
pany sought our approval of a |[; 
changed ventilation plan, that we 
refused because the fans were too t 
small, that Mr. Fleming strongly t\ 
objected to a larger fan because it ■) 
would necessitate more heating 
equipment, and that it was only be- 
cause we refused approval of the i 
small fan that the company finally 
changed it. 

I do not understand what Mr. 
Arnold means when he says : "The f 
100 1913 Chicago City Railway- 
Company cars were supplied with 
this same ventilating apparatus * 
that had been approved by him for ' 
the Chicago City Railway Company's ■ 
near-side cars." 

There have been no cars C'On-

traded foi" or placed in service that 
have equipment similar in type t'^ 
the near-side cars. 

Mr, Arnold is right about one 
thing. The design of the ventilating 
equipment of the 228 new cars just 
coming into service was approved 
by the Health Department, and if 
they have been built in strict ac- 
cordance with these plans and are 
operated as the plans contemplate 
they should be satisfactory. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed" G. B. Young, 

Commissioner of Health.

December 9, 1914. 

Eon. Eugene H. Block, Chairman, 
Committee on Local Transporta- 
tion, City Hall, Chicago, Illinois: 
Dear Sir — I acknowledge receipt 
of your letter of December 3, re- 
ferring to a sub-committee meeting 
held December 2, 1914, at which 
"The Commissioner of Health com- 
plained that he had been unable to 
secure co-operation upon the part 
of the Board of Supervising En- 
gineers in bringing about proper 
street car ventilation" * * *, 
and further stating that the Gom- 
I mittee directed you to communicate 
with this Board in this matter, 

"and to request that in fu- 
ture you work with the 
.'Commissioner of Health to 
secure proper car ventila- 
tion." 

In reply beg leave to say that in 
regard to information requested by 
the Health Commissioner we have 
always given him full information 
in our possession, and if the in- 
formation requested of us by him 
was not in our possession we have 
endeavored to advise him where it 
could be secured. 

During the rehabilitation period 
the plans and specifications cover- 
ing the manufacture of cars were 
prepared by the Board under the 



Chief Engineer of the Work, and 
care , was taken that the heating 
provisions were such that thoy 
complied with the provisions of the 
1907 ordinance. 

With respect to ventilation, this 
Board and the Companies took 
initial steps with respect to the 
improvement of ventilation on the 
surface cars to the extent that 
special ventilating apparatus was 
introduced in first cars, which ex- 
periments were afterwards supple- 
mented by the application of dif- 
ferent kinds of automatic ven- 
tilating apparatus. 

During this period Dr. W. A. 
Evans, then Commissioner of Health, 
took an active part with this Board 
and the Companies on the subject 
of ventilation, with the result that 
at the time of the revision of the 
municipal code a ventilating or- 
dinance was passed by the Council 
which represented the best judg- 
ment of the Health Department and 
this Board at that time, the provi- 
sions of which were thereafter 
worked to by the Board in connec- 
tion with all new car equipment. 

At the expiration of the re- 
habilitation period the office of 
Chief Engineer of the Work auto- 
matically expired by the provisions 
of the ordinance, and after this date 
the Board did not design the cars, 
but the initiation of plans and 
specifications for additions and 
improvements to property have 
been made by the companies sub- 
ject to the approval of this Board. 
At this time one of the rules 
established by the Board with 
respect to the ventilating provi- 
sions to be supplied for the cars so 
designed by the companies was that 
the ventilating equipment or ap- 
paratus supplied should be ac- 
ceptable to the Health Department, 
and our records show that the ven- 
tilating apparatus applied to the 
cars referred to by Commissioner 
Young had been approved by him. 

The 200 cars built by the Chicago 



2830 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. January i5, 1915. 



City Railway Company in 1913 were 
equipped with a ventilating ap- 
paratus suggested and approved by 
the Health Commissioner, and was 
also the ventilating apparatus ap- 
plied to the 125 near-side cars 
built by the Chicago City Railway 
Company. The 100 1913 Chicago 
City Railway Company cars were 
supplied with this same ventilating 
apparatus that had been approved 
by him for the Chicago City Railway 
Company's near-side cars. 

The ventilating apparatus for the 
228 cars now, under construction by 
the Chicago Surface Lines has been 
approved by the Health Department 
of the City of Chicago. 

I further wish to state that we 
have always endeavored to work in 
accord with the Department of 
Health in an attempt to secure 
compliance with the provisions of 
the various ordinances in regard to 
the heating and ventilation of the 
surface cars and that we desire to 
continue this co-operation in the 
future. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Bion J. Arnold, 

Chairman.

COMMISSIONER OF HEALTH. 

The Clerk presented the follow-

Gommissioner of Health, which was 
referred to the Committee on 
Health: 

Department of Health,] 
Chicago, January 12, 1915.] 

To His Honor, the Mayor, and the 
Honorable, the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I respectfully invite 
your attention to the fact that Sec- 
tions 1462 to 1468 of the Code, 
which together make up Article 28, 
under the caption "Night Soil Re- 



duction," were passed at the time 
there was a plan afoot which con- 
templated the disposal of night soil 
through some sort of disposal plant 
to be provided by private con- 
tractor. 

The plan fell through entirely, 
the scheme having been demon- 
strated to be entirely without merit, 
and Article 28 has simply remained 
in the Code as so much dead matter. 

In the course of the general re- 
vision of the Code which has been 
going on in connection with the 
study of the Department made by 
the Efficiency Division we have 
taken up the question of eliminat- 
ing the obsolete and duplicate sec- 
tions. 

As the Article in question has no 
longer any reason for existence, I 
respectfully recommend its repeal. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) G. B. Young, 

Commissioner of Health. 



GENERAL SUPERINTENDENT OF 
POLICE. 

The Clerk presented the follow- 
ing communication submitted by 
the General Superintendent of 
Police, which was referred to the 
Committee on Streets and Alleys: 

Department of Police,! 
Chicago, January 14, 1915.] 

To the Honorable, the City Council 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Your attention is 
respectfully directed to page 2737 
of the Council Proceedings of Janu- 
ary 4, 1915, on which the following 
appears : 

"Stand No. 26. The west side of 
North Dearborn street from W. 
Madison street to the south line of 
the first alley north thereof." 

On page 1472 of the Council Pro- 
ceedings of July 14, 1913, the fol- 
lowing appears: 

"Stand No. 26. The south side of

Madison street extending 170 feet 
west of the west line of Michigan 
avenue."' 

You will, therefore, note from the 
above that there are two cab 
stands numbered 26. 

I also enclose communication 
from Captain G. C. Healy, Com- 
manding the TrafTic Division, in 
which he states that the west side 
of Dearborn street from W. Madi- 
son to the south line of the first 
alley north is a poor location for a 
public stand and that the same is 
unnecessary in, view of the fact that 
stand No. 14 is only about 200 feet 
north lof this new stand. Stand No. 
14 occupies the entire block on 
Dearborn from Washington street 
to Randolph street and provides 
ample room for vehicles for hire in 
this vicinity. Traffic on Dearborn 
street is always congested, even un- 
der the most favorable circum- 
stances, and a public cab stand in 
the location, in which No. 26 is 
placed, will constitute a serious in- 
terference with the free movement 
of traffic. 

Kespectfully, 



(Signed 



James Gleason, 
General Superintendent.

The following is said order as 
passed : 

Whereas, There is in the special 
fund known as the traction fund of 
the city, the same bejng the fund 
that has been accumulated from the 
earnings of 'the city in and about 
the operation of the various street 
railways of the city by the terms 
of the ordinances under which they 
are operated, a large sum of money 
which is not required for immediate 
use for any purpose except for de- 
posit on interest or for productive, 
investment, the city standing in the 
relation of trustee for such fund 
while it is so accumulating; and 

Whereas, The officers of the city 
were duly authorized by the action 
of the City Council, ratified by the 
voters of the city, to issue certain 
municipal bonds for bridge con- 
struction, bearing interest at the 
rate of four per cent (4%) per an- 
num, of which Two Million. Two 
.Hundred Thirty-five Thousand Dol- 
lars ($2,235,000) worth are now on 
hand and undisposed of; and 

Whereas, The market price of 
the said bonds at the present time 
is about ninety-eight and a half 
(98^) per cent of the par value and 
the sale of same at this time would 
therefore result in loss to the City 
of Chicago; and 

Whereas,, It is desirable to se- 
cure the sum of Two Hundred and 
Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) 
for bridge construction purposes, 
and the loaning of such sum from 
the traction fund to the City of 
Chicago for such use will inure to 
thfe benefit of such traction fund by 
reason, of the higher rate of inter- 
est it will receive thereby; there- 
fore 

It is ordered, That the City Comp- 
troller and City Treasurer be and 
they are hereby authorized and di- 
rected to transfer the sum of Two 
Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dol- 
lars ($250,000) from the traction 
fund of the City of Chicago to the 
credit of the fund to be derived 



from the sale of Bridge Bonds au- 
thorized by ordinance of the City 
Council of October 2, 1911, the said 
sum to be retained in the Bridge 
Bond Fund for ninety (90) days as 
a loan to the City of Chicago, for 
which the city shall pledge and does 
hereby pledge as security such 
Bridge Bonds of the par value of 
Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand 
Dollars ($250,000). 

And it is further ordered, That 
the City Comptroller be and he is 
hereby directed to turn over to the 
City Treasurer such Bridge Bonds 
of the par value of Two Hundred 
and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,- 
000) which are to be retained by 
the City Treasurer as security for 
such loan from said traction fund, 
all interest accruing during the 
period that the same are so held as 
security to become a part of the 
said traction fund, and the City 
Comptroller is hereby further au- 
thorized to make such endorse- 
ments on the said bonds so pledged 
as may be necessary to carry out the 
intent of this order and to take such 
steps as will be required to redeem 
the bonds so pledged upon the ex- 
piration of the period for which the 
same are to be pledged as provided 
herein. 

ALSO, 

The same committee submitted 
the following report, consideration 
of which was deferred : 

Chicago, January 15, 1915. 
To the Honorable, the Mayor and 

Aldermen in the City Council 

Assembled: 

Gentlemen — As provided by law, 
the annual appropriation bill for 
the fiscal year commencing Janu- 
ary 1, 1915, and ending December 
31, 1915, is ' herewith respectfully 
submitted in printed form for your 
consideration. 

The committee has carefully re- 
viewed and considered every detail 
of the preliminary departmental 
estimates -and the revised, estimates 



2834 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



January 15, 1915. 



of the city comptroller, both as to 
the past work of the various de- 
partments of the city g-overnment, 
and the information concerning 
work on hand and to be undertaken. 

The results of this review are 
contained in detail in the revised 
and summary statement in this 
ordinance. 

Added activities of the munic- 
ipal government affecting public 
health, public service and welfare 
and the operation and maintenance 
of public works have been furth- 
ered by the inclusion of additional 
appropriations for same, but the 
inadequacy of corporate revenues 
has prevented provision of propor- 
tionate additional appropriations 
for a number of such projects and 
work, although the committee has 
felt them to be meritorious and 
necessary. 

While the committee was un- 
animous in the belief that addi- 
tional police protection was de- 
sirable, it was confronted with the 
fact that the total appropriations 
required for other activities were 
considerably above the estimated 
revenue for 1915; and the oommit- 
tee was, therefore, limited in the 
provision for additional police force 
to 210 for this year. 

Unless favorable action is ob- 
tained from the legislature in the 
coming session, when the amend- 
ment of the Juul law placing the 
levy and sinking funds outside of 
the rate limitation will become in- 
effective, the resources of the cor- 
porate purposes fund will suffer a 
loss approximately estimated at 
$5,000,000.00. 

In the review of the estimates, 
the committee considered the mat- 
ter of taking further advanced 
steps in the development of effective 
budget procedure, which would tend 
to more efficient adminisiration and 
increased economy and be to the 
interest of giving the citizens and 
legislative officers more complete 
information about the business af- 



fairs and fmancial needs of the city. 
During the last five years much 
progress has been made in this 
city in budget making and fmancial 
administration. In no small meas- 
ure this has been due to the intro- 
duction of systematic budget esti- 
mates and uniform salaries for all 
offices and positions in the city ser- 
vice. 

The plan and rules recom- 
mended by the Efficiency Divi- 
sion of the Civil Service Commission 
of establishing advancement strictly 
upon the rule of duties, seniority 
and efficiency, as is provided for in 
the ordinance passed by the City 
Council July 15, 1912, has been ad- 
hered to by this committee and the 
salary increases in this ordinance 
have been made in accordance 
therewith in so far as all positions 
in the cfficial service of the city are 
concerned. 

A subcommittee of the commiitee 
has been appointed to take up the- 
matter of union scales of wages of 
city employes engaged in crafts and 
useful arts and the recommenda- 
tions of this committee, acting with 
officials of the Federation of LaJ}or, 
will be forthcoming before March 
31, 1915. This plan has been en- 
dorsed by the Federation of Labor. 

The committee has considered the 
purposes and benefits - of the con- 
tinuation of capital accounts for de- 
partments doing woTk for other city 
departments and has recommended 
the preparatio'n of an ordinance, 
which will be submitted to your 
honorable body within a short time, 
providing for better administrative 
control and regulation of work 
done under these accounts. 

The consideration of the revenues 
and estimates this year has further 
emphasized the need of providing a 
permanent Board of Apportionment 
and Control, which would check up 
on the work and expenditures of 
various departments throughout, 
the year, thereby placing the City 
Council and the committee in a bet- 



January 15, 1915.

ter position to consider the annual 
departmental estimates and appro- 
priations with reference to reve- 
nues. This board would also direct 
and co-operate with the depart- 
ments in the study of organization, 
methods and systenis, tending to 
promote the efflcient and economical 
administration cf all municipal ac- 
tivities. The committee has recom- 
mended that such a board be cre- 
ated during the forthcoming year 
consisting of His Honor the Mayor, 
the City Comptroller, the Chairman 
of the Committee on Finance and a 
subcommittee cf the Committee on 
Finance. 

In conclusion, the committee de- 
sires to express its thanks to the 
City Comptroller, the Efficiency Di- 
vision and the iheads of the various 
other departments for their co- 
operation and valuable assistance in 
the preparation of this budget. It 
is the committee's earnest ihope that 

the City Council will adopt this ap- 
propriation bill as herewith sub- 
mitted. 

Yours ve^ry truly, 

(Signed) John A. Richert, 

Chairman. 



MINORITY REPORT. 

In connection with the foregoing 
report, Aid. Merriam presented the 
following report of a minority of 
said commiHee, consideration cf 
which was deferred: 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the 
City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, in City Council Assembled: 
The undersigned, a minority of 
your Committee on Finance, to 
whom had been referred the Comp- 
troller's and departmental estimates 
for the fiscal year beginning January 
1, 1915, having had same under ad- 
visement, begs leave to submit the 
follow^ing report : 

The budget as it now stands con- 
tains appropriations for the year 
1915 amounting to $2,000,000.00 in 
excess of estimated revenues for 



the year. In addition to this a sum 
of about $300,000.00 must be added 
to cover increases of wages in ac- 
cordance with the union scale. The 
exact amount cannot be s-tated, since 
these items have been referred to 
a sub-committee of the Finance 
Committee for a settlement with the 
various unions; but $300,000.00 is a 
conservative estimate. This increas- 
es the deficiency to $2,300,00.00. 
In addition to this, emergency ap- 
propriations are certain to be made 
during the year. These items will 
not be less than $250,000.00, and 
may run as high as $1,000,000.00. 
In the year 1914 these appropria- 
tions aggregated over $8,000,000.00, 
not including the appropriation for 
fire and police stations. If emergency 
appropriations are estimated at as 
low as $250,000.00 the deficiency 
becomes $2,550,000.00. Finally there 
are items in the appropriation bill 
which are to be reimbursed from 
the proceeds of bond issues, if car- 
ried. Under this head are included 
$300,000.00 for the garbage plant, 
$60,000.00 for the John Worthy 
school, and $250,000.00 for fire sta- 
tions—a total of $610,000.00. This 
amount would be added to the ap- 
propriations in case these bond is- 
sues were defeated. In that event, 
the total deficit for the year 1915 
would be $3,160,000.00. Assuming 
that the bond issues are carried, the 
proposed budget exceeds the City 
revenues by at least $2,550,000.00. 

In addition to this, there arp 
$750,000.00 of judgments outstand- 
ing and they are accumulating at 
the rate of about $150,000.00 per 
year. The voters last Spring re- 
fused to sanction a bond issue for 
the payment of judgments on the 
theory that such charges should be 
cared for out of the current reve- 
nues. No provision for paying any 
part of these judgments is made m 
the present budget, and consequent- 
ly the amount now outstanding and 
bearing interest at the rate of five 
per cent per annum will continue 
to increase. 



2836 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



January 15, 1915. 



If the City should exceed its 
revenues by any amount labove 
.?288,000.00, there would be no cash 
available from which payments 
could be made, nor could any funds 
be raised from the sale of tax an- 
ticipation warrants or bonds. 

It is estimated that there may be 
a gain from what is called "salvage", 
i. e. the amount of an appropriation 
unexpended and returned. That the 
salvage would amount to $2,500,- 
000.00, or nearly 10 per cent of the 
total appropriation is not probable. 
The Comptroller's office is author- 
ity for the statement that the sal- 
vage averages between 4 and 6 per 
cent; or about one-half of the esti- 
mated deficit; (assuming that all of 
the bond issues are carried). 

It is clear, moreover, that a bud- 
set based on the assumption that 
the departments will spend only 90 
per cent of the amount allowed them 
by tbe appropriating body is un- 
sound and unbusinesslike. If we 
know in advance that we are ap- 
propriating for the various depart- 
ments 10 per cent more than we 
hope to pay, then the appropria- 
tions should be proportionately re- 
duced now. The appropriation bill 
should be sent back to the Comp- 
troller and the several departments 
with instructions to bring their es- 
timates down to a figure within the 
estimated revenues of the munici- 
pality. Sometime during the year 
this must be done or the city will 
face bankruptcy; and sound financ- 
ing requires that it should be done 
now. 

A step forward has been taken 
by limiting the amount which may 
be spent, with some necessary ex- 
ceptions, during the various quar- 
ters of the fiscal year. The enforce- 
ment of this provision, however, has 
been placed in the hands of a com- 
mittee of three aldermen, the Mayor 
and the Comptroller, and it is not 
at all certain that this body will be 
successful as a controlling agency. 
The Mayor and the Comptroller 



miight have required from the be- 
ginning that estimates, within the 
means of the city, be submitted by 
the administrative departments. On 
the contrary, the administration 
budget submitted Deciember 7th 
contained estimates $3,200,000.00 in 
excess of revenue, and with the sig- 
nificant statement "said reduction 
to be distributed by the City Coun- 
cil." With some exceptions, the at- 
titude of the administrative depart- 
ments has not been that of a desire 
to help the Finance Committee bring 
the budget within the revenues of 
the city, but to obtain the largest 
appropriation possible even by de- 
ception of the committee, in some 
instances. Unless the spirit of the 
administration changes, it is rash 
to over-appropriate $2,500,000.00 on 
the assumption that somehow or 
other bankruptcy will be averted 
by the efforts of this committee. 

Ample information would have 
been in the possession of the com- 
mittee but for the fact that the ef- 
fort to secure such information 
nearly two years ago was blocked 
by the Mayor and the majority of 
the Council. The Council refused, 
in 1913, to admit the Bureau of 
Public Efficiency for the purpose of 
an inquiry into the methods of 
spending public funds, and the 
Mayor previously stated that he 
would veto such a resolution if 
passed. As a sham substitute for 
such an inquiry a commission on 
city expenditures was created. No 
sooner had this commission started 
on the inquiry than the body was 
packed by the addition of the three 
civil service commissioners. This 
clearly indicated the intention to 
prevent an investigation not com- 
pletely under the control of those 
investigated. As a matter of fact 
only one report was made and the 
work of the commission was wholly 
ineffective. This Fall the Bureau of 
Public Efficiency was finally ad- 
mitted to the Water Department 
but too late to make any exhaustive

inquiry before budget making be- 
gan in December. 

Those who have been responsible 
for concealing the facts regarding 
the city's fmances must now as- 
sume responsibility for appro- 
priating money which the city does 
not now have and has no reasonable 
prospect of securing. 

I am willing to sit with the 
Finance Committee until March 31, 
the last day for passing the budget, 
in an effort to bring the ex- 
penditures within the city's means. 
I am not willing and do not intend 
to vote for the present budget, 
over-loaded as it is, and concealing 
as it does facts which the public 
should long since have linown.

The 'following is the communica-

report : 

Law Department,! 
Chicago, December 28, 1914.J 

Honorable Otto Kerner, Chairman, 
Committee on Judiciary, State 
Legislation, Elections and Rules: 
Dear Sir — Some time ago the 
City Comptroller directed the at- 
tention of yeur committee to the 
necessity of legislative action in or- 
der to meet the condition that will 
arise in 1916, when the three-year 
limitation placed in the amended 
Juul Law will have expired. The 
Comptroller at the same time re- 
quested that the law department 
should co-operate' with the com- 
mittee in the framing of a bill for 
the purpose. 

The committee has not yet taken 
the matter up in a formal way, but, 
since the legislature is soon to con- 
vene, we deem it proper to lay be- 
fore you a statement of the situa- 
tion and the draft of a bill to rem- 
edy same, so that you can take ac- 
tion on the recommendation of the 
Comptroller. 

The members of your committee 
are no doubt familiar, in a general 
way, with the circumstances lead- 
ing up to the enactment of the 
amendment containing the three- 
year limitation of which we speak. 
These circumstances, in brief, are 
as follows: 

Prior to the year 1912 the County 
Clerk, in extending the taxes for 
the City of Chicago in accordance 
with the city's tax levy ordinance 
after the rate had been reduced by 
the scaling process required under 
the Juul law, would extend the 
$1.10 prescribed as a minimum for 
the city, and in addition thereto 
would extend such further rate as 
was necessary to meet the interest 
and to provide a sinking fund for' 
bonds as they matured. Such ad- 
ditional rate would vary from year 
to vear. running all the way from

35 cents to 45 cents. About July 
1, 1912, the Supreme Court, in de- 
ciding a case involving the con- 
struction of the law in one of the 
southern counties of the state, held 
that it was improper to extend such 
additional rate, thereby wiping out 
the revenues of the city derived 
therefrom, which in that year 
amounted in round numbers, to $3,- 
700,000, considerably more than 
one-third of the entire amount re- 
ceived that year from taxes. Such 
a shrinkage necessarily resulted in 
a situation that was critical, and an 
appeal was ihade to the legislature, 
when it convened in 1913, to change 
the law so that the County Clerk 
would be authorized to extend the 
additional rate in the same man- 
ner as he had done before the year 
1912. In order to secure the pas- 
sage of the proposed act it was 
found necessary to limit the time 
during which this relief would be 
granted, and a provision was in- 
serted which restricted such ad- 
ditional rate to "a period of three 
years beginning with the vear 
1913." 

From the above you will observe 
that unless there is something done 
at the coming session of the leg- 
islature to provide for the revenue 
that will be lost to the city under 
the construction of the Act placed 
upon it by the Supreme Court, the 
city during the year 1916 will 
again be reduced to a rate of $1.10 
with which to meet both its cur- 
rent corporate needs and the obli- 
gations accruing from outstanding 
bonds, which at that time will re- 
quire even a larger levy than in 
1912. 

It is quite likely that in thus 
limiting the period for which the 
additional rate should be extended, 
the legislature had no other pur- 
pose in view than the passage of 
some other act in the meanwhile to 
take care of the shortage in a dif- 
ferent way. An act was in fact 
passed at that session which, if 



adopted by the voters of the Citj 
of Chicago, would have permanently 
remedied the difficulty — the Park 
Consolidation Act. But this act did 
not receive the sanction of the Gov- 
ernor, and therefore the effect of 
making that limitation is that the 
law in 1916 will be the same as it 
was in 1912 if it is not again 
amended, while the shrinkage of 
revenue for general corporate pur- 
poses will be even greater than be- 
fore on account of a larger amount 
of bonds having been issued which 
are now outstanding. 

Some idea of what the amount of 
this shrinkage would be in 1916 
may be gathered from the levy 
made this year for interest and 
sinking fund, which, after ail de- 
ductions resulting from purchase of 
bonds, saving of interest, etc., were 
made, amounted to $4,570,039.06. 
The net amount will not be less in 
1916 and may be more, depending 
on whether additional bonds will be 
issued in the meanwhile. On the 
other hand, there probably will be 
no considerable increase in taxable 
property in the meanwhile. The 
most strenuous efforts to bring io 
light property which escaped taxa- 
tion, together with the natural in- 
crease, added only about $19,000,000, 
to the assessed valuation of prop- 
erty in the city this year. Taking 
this as a basis for computation and 
even assuming that there will be 
no necessity for increasing the levy 
for interest and sinking fund of 
bonds, the fact stares the city au- 
thorities in the face that at least 42 
per cent of all the revenues of the^ 
city derived from taxation would 
have to be applied to the payment 
of interest and the accumulation of 
a sinking fund to take care of the 
outstanding bonds of the city. 

In other words, the revenue from 
taxation will probably not be much 
more than $11,000,000, and of this 
amount at least $4,600,000 will have 
to be set aside for interest and 
sinking funds, since the statute

compels the city authorities to pro- 
vide for same. If there are any ad- 
ditional bond issues ordered in the 
meanwhile the amount so used will 
be correspondingly larger. 

The full extent of the difficulties 
which the city under such circum- 
stances would have to meet is not 
generally appreciated. A compari- 
son of the amount which would in 
this way be lost to the city with the 
entire amount of the city's corpo- 
rate revenues, in itself would dem- 
onstrate that there is no way in 
which the city council can pare 
down appropriations sufficiently to 
bring them within the revenues. 
But such a comparison by no means 
represents the well-nigh insur- 
mountable problem which would 
confront it by reason of the restric- 
tions placed on the corporate au- 
thorities in the handling of the 
city's finances. We undertake to 
point out only some of these diffi- 
culties in this letter, but what we 
show is enough to drive home the 
fact that unless relief is obtained 
some of the activities of the city 
will be seriously handicapped if not 
rendered entirely valueless, while 
others would have to be abandoned. 

Roughly speaking, the revenues 
of the city, after deducting water 
rates and vehicle taxes, which must 
be applied to specific purpoises, 
amount to $11,000,000 from taxa- 
tion and $12,000,000 from miscel- 
laneous receipts. The miscellan- 
eous receipts for 1914 ran above 
this amount on account of an ex- 
traordinary payment of the Union 
Station Company, but otherwise 
were as stated. 

The appropriajtion bill of 1914 
falls far short of including all that 
is necessary to maintain the various 
departments and bureaus of the 
city. A number of additional ap- 
propriations bad to be made during 
the year, and two entirely new de- 
partments ihave been provided for 
that are not even mentioned there- 
in. Yet lan examination of that 



Appropriation Bill will show that 
even if there could be a horizontal 
reduction of 20 per cent the ex- 
penses of the city could not be met 
with revenues of approximately 
$18,400,000.00. 

But it is, principally to show that 
no such thing as a horizontal re- 
duction is possible that this state- 
ment is made. The city has fixed 
charges, chief among which are its 
obligations under bonds issued by 
it, which oannot under any circum- 
stances be reduced. In pointing out 
some of these in the 1914 appro- 
priation ordinance, we are taking 
the only figures available, but we 
believe that the 1916 figures, if they 
could be foreseen, would in each in- 
stance only emphasize the point we 
make. Based on the 1914 figures, 
we call attention to the following: 

The appropriations for interest 
and sinking fund for bonds 
amounted to $4,770,519.00, for the 
Municipal Court $945,273.30, for the 
Election Commissioners $745,208.40, 
for the City Council $212,250.00, for 
other statutory officers whose sal- 
aries cannot be reduced $67,000.00, 
for interest on tax warrants and 
judgments $225,776.00, for rents 
$81,759.75, for Juvenile Court 
maintenance $33,250.00, for taxes on 
city property $26,000.00, for elec- 
trical current under contract $215,- 
000.00, for rentals of lights and 
lamps $318,500.00, for gas for street 
lighting $127,260.00, for interest to 
Sanitary District $125,000.00, for 
installment on contract with Sani- 
tary District $325,639.98. 

These items, amounting to $8,- 
159,186.43, are not nearly all of the 
charges which are absolutely fixed 
and cannot by any action of the city 
council be reduced. They do not 
take into consideration contract 
obligations whicb are entered into 
from year to year, running into 
millions, for coal, feed, fire and 
police equipment, etc., which are 
also for practical purposes in the 
same class and cannot be reduced. 
Nor do they take into consideration 



284^

wages of mechanics and laborers 
which cannot be reduced without 
the danger of involving the city in 
labor disputes. Yet when these 
amounts are deducted, assuming 
that the remaining appropriations 
would come within the estim^ated 
revenues, we And ithat even a ihori- 
zoiital reduction of one-third would 
not be sufficient to overcome the 
shrinkage of $4,600,000.00. 

We could go on and show that 
when the final slash came, in order 
to bring the expenses of the city 
within its income, practically the 
entire reduction would fall on the 
clerical, inspection, legal, police 
and fire forces of the city and tbat 
all salaries would have to be cut in 
half, or that as an alternative the 
city would have to abandon a large 
part of its governmental work. Wo 
do not believe in piling up figures 
wliich, after we have plainly indi- 
cated what disastrous consequences 
might be apprehended, would only 
tend to predict a situation even 
more appalling. 

If you or any of the members of 
your committee, having in mind the 
figures we present above, were to 
examine the appropriations made 
for the current year in any one of 
the departments, the utter futility 
of trying to meet such a condition 
as impends, would at once be mani- 
fest. 

For example, the police depart- 
ment, with its appropriation of 
$7,050,452.60, to wihich was added a 
million and a quarter for construc- 
tions and betterments, and to which 
it is now proposed to add at least 
another million for additional pa- 
trolmen, would be compelled to 
subsist on four and one-ihalf to five 
millions of dollars. Again, the de- 
partment of. health, where the sal-, 
aries of only, a portion of the pm- 
ployes could be reduced, could not 
be made to bear its proportionate 
share of the shrinkage without 
practically wiping out its efficiency. 
These and other things could be 



pointed out in detail if your com- 
mittee desired further light on this 
subject. 

The labove statement must make 
it clear to you that the comptroller 
has drawn your attention to this 
matter because the legislation he 
asks for is of vital importance to 
the city. 

We submit herewith draft of the 
proposed bill which we believe will 
Cover the necessities of the case. 
You will observe that it simply 
elimiinates the time clause and ex- 
cludes from the scaling process the 
levy for the municipial tuberculosis 
sanitarium. Tihe latter is now ex- 
cluded by a late statute amending 
the act creating the sanitarium. 
The only purpose in putting this in 
the proposed act is to avoid the 
possibility of having the new lact 
construed as a later statute which 
contravenes that provision.

RESIGNATION OP ALD. LINDHEIMER. 

The Clerk presented the follow- 
ing communication submitted by 
Aid. Lindheimer: 

Chicago, III., .Jan. 15, 1915. 

To the Honorable Mayor and the 
City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen— Supplementing my 
communication to your honorable 
body, of recent date, I beg to ad- 
vise you that I herewith tender my 
resignation as a member of the 
City Council of the City of Chicago, 
representing the Third Ward of 
said city, such resignation to take 
effect forthwith. 

I am induced to modify the 
resignation heretofore tendered to 
you, which, under its terms, was to 
become effective upon the qualifica- 
tion of my successor after his elec- 
tion, to be held on the first Tuesday 
in April, by reason of the following 
circumstances and conditions : 

The honorable Corporation Coun- 
sel of the. City of Chicago has re- 
jcently rendered an opinion that 
I unless my resignation be unquali- 
jfiedly tendered to your honorablp 
|body forthwith, there would be no 
opportunity for' the voters in my 
ward to elect my successor at the 
coming April election, and while I 
am loath to have my ward with only 
one 'representative in your body 
nntil sucli election, T deem it my 
^uty to my constituency to be en- 
abled to elect my successor at that 



time, rather than to have such 
vacancy continued for a period of 
one year thereafter. 

I am furthermore induced to take 
this immediate action by reason of 
the fact that my duties as Assistant 
Treasurer are so arduous and re- 
quire such constant attention and 
application that I feel that I cannot 
do full justice to both positions, 
and it is barely possible that in the 
transaction of my duties as As- 
sistant Treasurer, some question 
might arise, in the decision of 
which I might possibly be the sub- 
ject of criticism as representing 
the County Treasurer and at the 
same time representing the City of 
Chicago in my aldermanic capacity. 

I respectfully request that this 
resignation and communication be 
rnade a part of the official record of 
the City Council. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) Jacob Lindheimer, 

Aid. 3rd Ward. 

Unanimous consent was given for 
consideration of the foregoing 
resignation. 

Aid. Nash moved to accept said 
resignation. 

The motion prevailed. 

Thereupon Aid. Nash presented 
the following resolution: 

Whereas, Jacob Lindheimer was 
duly elected as Alderman of the 
Third Ward of the City of Chicago, 
and was appointed to the position 
of Deputy County Treasurer, and 
has since the date of said appoint- 
ment presented his resignation 
from the office of alderman; now 
therefore be it 

Resolved. By the City Council of 
the City of Chicago, that the said 
Jacob Lindheimer is disqualifled to 
further act as an alderman of this 
city, and his office of alderman of 
said Third Ward is hereby declared 
vacant.

CITY CLERK. 

The Clerk presented the follow-

Citizens' Association of Chicago, | 
Chicago, January 15, 1915. ( 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor, and 
the Honorable Members of the 
City Council of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On behalf of the 
Citizens' Association of Chicago, 
we desire respectfully to call your 
attention to the fact that the per- 
mit for the Metropolitan Railroad 
Bridge has expired and that the 
permit for the Madison Street 
Bridge will expire next May. It is 
the opinion of this Association, 
often expressed, that all center- 
pier bridges on the Chicago River 
should be removed at the earliest 
possible date and replaced with 
bridges of a modern type having, 
wherever practicable, a clear span 
of 200 feet. 

We are earnestly of the opinion 
that adherence to this policy is 
necessary in order to make proper 
provision for the needs of naviga- 
tion and for the disposal of sewage. 
We therefore earnestl^^ urge that 
the authorities of the City of Chi- 
cago should use every means in 
their power to bring about the early 
removal of the two bridges above- 
mentioned and to secure their re- 



placement by bridges having a 200- 
foot-clear span. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Moses E. Greenebaum, 
President. 
S. M. Singleton, 

Secretary.

Law Department,] 
Chicago, January 15, 1915. ( 

To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On January 11th, 
1915, (Council Journal, page 2752), 
your Honorable Body re-referred 
to this department an opinion ren- 
dered by us on January 11th, 1915, 
in response to a request of the City 
Council in the matter of the neces- 
sity for frontage consents for the 
operation, by the Chicago Municipal 
Tuberculosis Sanitarium, of a 
medical dispensary at 4319-23 
Indiana avenue. In said opinion of 
January 11th we were under the 
impression that the City Council 
had approved the plans for said 
dispensary building. It appears 
that the guestion of the approval 
of the plans was before the City 
Council on that date but was de- 
ferred for further consideration. 

The question as to whether or 
not the plans were approved has no 
bearing upon the question of the 
necessity of obtaining frontage con- 
sents. The City Council, by its 
order passed July 2, 1914, (Council 

I Journal Proceedings, page 1195), 
authorized the board of directors of 
the sanitarium to purchase the land 
at the location above-mentioned for 

\ use as a site for a central South 
Side dispensary. The board of 
directors has the power to erect an 
appropriate building for a dis- 



pensary on. said site by and- with 
the approval of the City Council. 

In such case the building may be 
erected without frontage consents 
being obtained therefor. 

We herewith return our opinion 
of January Uth, 1915. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Louis Salinger, 

Assistant Corporation Counsel. 
Approved : 

(Signed) John W. Beckwith, 
Corporation Counsel.

Chicago, January 16, 1915. 
To the Honorable Carter H. Harri- 
son, Mayor, and the Chicago City 
Council: 

Gentlemen — The undersigned 
general committee, seleated at a 
general meeting held by American 
citizens, members of all the prin- 
cipal Polish organizations and 
members of all political affiliations,

NEW BUSINESS — BY WARDS. January 16, {915. 



most sincerely desire to express 
their thanks to the Honorable 
Mayor, and the City Council, for the 
privilege granted for declaring 
January 23rd and 24th, 1915, as 
"Tag Days for the Benefit of War 
Sufferers in Poland". 

Without question the most inno- 
cent and greatest sufferers as the 
result of the inhuman slaughter 
are the Poles. The once glorious 
Kingdom of Poland is partitioned 
between the three principal com- 
batants — Germany, Austria, and 
Russia. The flower of the Polish 
manhood is forced into the front 
ranks to kill each other, most inno- 
cently. The great Eastern struggle 
is upon the land of old Poland, the 
cities and villages devastated, hun- 
dreds of thousands are without roof 
over their heads, thousands dying 
of hunger, from the father to the 
smallest child, are suffering for the 
cause of their oppressors. 

The Polish citizens of Chicago, 
who always had cheerfully aided 
towards the upbuilding of this 
great city, bore their share of taxa- 
tions, teaching their offspring to 
become good citizens and greatly 
lessening the hardships in the con- 
duct of the city affairs, by co- 
operation to the fullest extent, beg 
further to ask of the Mayor and the 
Chicago City Council, that the re- 
sult be successful, that an appeal 
through the press to the public of 
Chicago, for the support of this 
worthy cause, be issued by the 
Honorable Mayor and the Chicago 
City Council. 

Very respectfully, 
(Signed) Adam Majewski, 
Commissioner for Illinois of The 
Polish National Alliance, Pres- 
ident of Comm.

Aid, Kunz presented the following 
resolution, which was, on motion,

Whereas, The European war 
is being fought in part on the soil 
of the former Kingdom of Poland, 
which Kingdom is now partitioned 
between the three principal com- 
batants, Germany, Russia and Aus- 
tria; and 

Whereas, The most innocent and 
the greatest sufferers of the inhuman 
slaughter are the Poles — the flower 
of Polish manhood has been uii- 
willingly forced into the front ranks 
of the respective armies to kill each 
other, and the women and children 
and those not able to serve in the 
armies have been reduced to star- 
vation, their homes have been de- 
stroyed and all means of livelihood 
taken away; and 

Whereas, Unless relief can be 
given to these sufferers by the citi- 
zens of nations not involved in the 
struggle, thousands of them must 
die for want o;f fOipd and shelter; 
and ' 

Whereas, In the name of human- 
ity, the citizens of Chicago, irre- 
spective of nationality and oreed, 
should respond generously to the 
pleas of these innocent sufferers; 
and. 

Whereas, The Polish National 
Alliance of Chicago have arranged 
to conduct a Tag Day for Polish 
War Sufferers on January 23rd and 
24th throughout the City of Chi-

Eon. Carter E. Earrison, Mayor, 

City of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — I am informed that 
while the budget was being con- 
sidered in committee of the whole 
the appropriation of $600 rent of 
office for the Morals Commission 
was stricken out. 

I feel, therefore, it is my duty to 
inform you that at the meeting of 
the Commission at which the esti- 
mate for the budget was prepared 
tho sentiment was quite unanimous 



that the office of the Commission 
should be so located as to permit 
its business to be transacted with a 
reasonable degree of privacy, and 
that it was impossible to obtain this 
if the office was located in the gen- 
eral office space occupied by any of 
the organizations of either the 
Health or Police Department. 

For this reason I respectfully 
urge that appropriation for rent be 
included in the budget. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) G. B. Young, 

Commissioner of Eealth.

There are no employes who are

regular mechanics and laborers 
of the division to do any work on 
requisition for other divisions, 
bureaus or departments, and 
when the work is completed the 
men are transferred back to their 
regular detail. The men who

Aid. Wm. J. Heaiy moved to cor- 
rect the printed record of the Pro- 
ceedings of the regular meeting held 
Saturday, January 16, 1915 (and the 
session thereof, held Monday, Janu- 
ary 18, 1915), by striking out the 
word and figures "27th District" oc- 
curring in the 45th line on page 2880 
of said record, and by inserting in 
lieu thereof the word and figures 
"28th District"; 

Also correct said record further, 
by striking out the word and figures 
'■27th District" occurring in the 
fourth line on page 3031 of said 
record, and by inserting in lieu 
thereof the word and figure "28th 
District". 

The motion prevailed. 
Aid. Capitain moved to correct 
said printed record further, by 
striking out, from page 2885 there- 
of, all words and figures under Ac- 
count 700-Yl (subways) ; and 
further, by striking out the figures

question.

raised and ruled Aid. Gapitain's mo- 
tion out of order.

prove saiid printed record, as cor- 
rected, as the Journal of the Pro-

Communications from the Mayor, 
Comptroller, Commissioner of 
Public Works and All Other 
City Officers, Departments and 
Branches of the City Government 
His Honor the Mayor submitted 

the following veto message: 



Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, January 25, 191 5. ( 
2'o the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — ^I return herewith 
without my approval an order 
passed by your Honorable Body at 
its meeting January 11th directing 
the Commissioner of Public Work? 
to issue a permit to M. Sorvillo to 
erect and maintain a revolving 
barber pole in front of his place 
of business known and situate as 
No. 191 N. Dearborn street, for the 
reason that Dearborn street is too 
congested to permit such obstruc- 
tion to be erected without a pre- 
vious invest* gation to learn how 
street traffic w^ould be affected by 
the same. 

I would, therefore, respectfully 
recommend that the vote by which 
the order was passed be reconsid- 
ered and that the order be referred 
to your Committee on Streets and 
Alleys for investigation. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Wm. J. Healy moved to re- 
consider the vote by which, said 
order, vetoed by His Honor the 
Mayor, was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Wm. J. Healy moved to refer 
said order to the Committee on 
Streets and Alleys. 

The moition prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 
Office of the Mayor,! 
Chicago, January 25, 191 5.( 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — Under the authority 
conferred upon me by law, I hereby 
submit my veto severally as to eaoh 
of the following items of the annual 
appropriation bill, passed by your 
honorable body on January 18, 1915, 
entitled "An ordinance making ap- 
propriations for Corporate, School, 
Public Library and Tuberculosis 



January 25, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

^ainitarium purposes for the fiscal 
©ar from January 1, 1915, to De- 
;ember 31, 1915", and appearing on 
)ages 2882 to 3079, inclusive, of the 
j'ournal of the Proceedings of the 
jMty Council of January 18, 1915 : 

j An item appearing under the 
jieading "Committee on Local 
Transportation", on page 2885 of 
he Journal of the Proceedings of 
he City Council of January 18, 
915, which reads las follows : 
"700-Y For the con- 
struction of a 
subway or sub- 
ways to be built 
under any ordi- 
nance which may 
hereafter be 
passed by the 
City Council and 
approved by the 
voters of the City 
of Chicago on a 
referendum vote, 
providing for a 
subway or sub- 
ways (to be fur- 
(t h e r accounted 
for under stand- 
ard accounts as 
expended) $2,000,000.00". 

My reason for vetoing this item 
? that tho City Council, in passing 
n this appropriation, voted to in- 
[•ease the same to $5,000,000.00, in 
rder to 'take care of work which 
lay possibly be undertaken during 
le current year, and, through the 
assing of a motion striking out in- 
^eases made on the floor of the 
ity Council, this increase, along 
ith the rest, was sitricken out. My 
npression is that this was done 
ladvertently, and in any event I do 
»t consider it safe to let the ap- 
^opriation stand at its present fig- 
^e, if any work on subways is to 
) undertaken during the current 
par. Therefore, I recommend that 
l»e item be increased to $5,000,- 
pO.OO, as was intended by the City 
i^uncil. 

An item appearing under the 
Jading *'City Clerk" on page 2887 



of said Journal, which reads las fol- 
lows: 

"Council Committee Sec- 
retary 2,520.00". 

My reason for vetoing this item is 
that I am advised by the efficiency 
engineer in charge of the bureau of 
efficiency that the employe who is 
filling this position is not eligible 
to advancement at this time in ac- 
cordance with the rules governing 
the provision for salary advance- 
ment adopted by Ithe City Council 
during the past four years and 
which are included in the civil ser- 
vice schedules, and, therefore, this 
item should be reduced. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Comptroller's Office", on 
page 2893 of said Journal, which 
reads as follows: 

"Punch and Machine 

Operator, 2 at $720.00.1,440.00". 

I am informed through the effi- 
ciency division that an examination 
for this position was recently held, 
and the minimum salary advertised 
was $840.00, and employes have 
been certified at that rate. It will 
therefore be necessary to change 
said appropriation. 

Two items appearing under the 
heading "Comptroller's Office" and 
under the sub-heading "Special As- 
sessment Division" on page 2893 of 
said Journal, which read as fol- 
lows : 

"Junior Clerk, 3 at 

$1,080.00 3,240.00" 

"Junior Clerk, 7 at 

$960.00 6,720.00". 

A change is recommended in these 
appropriations by the civil service 
commission owing to the fact that 
an additional junior clerk employed 
in that division is entitled to auto- 
matic advancement from $960.00 to 
$1,080.00, and, therefore, there 
should be provision made for four 
at the higher salary and six at the 
lower salary- 
Two items appearing under the 
heading "City Collector" on page

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 25, 1915. 



2897 01 said Jouriiai, which read as | 
follows: • ' I 

"Senior Clerk, 13 at 

; $1,560.00 20,280.00" 

"Senior Clerk, 10 at 

$1,500.00 15,000.00". 

A change is recommended in the 
foregoing items inasmuch as one of 
the senior clerks included in the 
larger appropriation is not eligible 
to automatic advancement and 
should be retained this year at the 
lower salary, thus necessitating an 
alteration in the said appropria- 
tions. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Police," 
and under the isub -heading "Office 
of First Deputy Superintendent of 
Police," appearing on page 2903 of 
said Journal, which reads as fol- 
lows : 

"Examiner of Public 
Motor Vehicle Opera- 
tors 1,500.00". 

My reason for vetoing this item is 
that the person holding the said po- 
sition received the salary of 
$1,620.00 for the year 1914, and his 
predecessor received a like salary 
before that time, and I am informed 
that the work of the present in- 
cumbent is satisfactory, and that a 
reduction of his salary therefore 
would be unjust. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Police" and 
under the sub-heading "Depart- 
mental Stables," on page 2904 of 
said Journal, which reads as fol- 
lows : 

"Hostler, 22 at 

$1,020.00 22,440.00". 

My reason for vetoing said item is 
that it is apparent from communi- 
cations that I have received from 
the General Superntendent of Po- 
lice, the First Deputy, and the 
Foreman of Horses, that the horses 
of the city cannot be taken care of 
with twenty-two hostlers. Three 
years ago, with one hundred less 
horses to care for, the city had 



thirty-six hostlers. A number of! 
these men have been returned to 
active duty as patrolmen, thereby} 
decreasing the force to thirty-two,' 
and this seems to be the least num-| 
ber that can be safely appropriated! 
for if the horses are to receive thej 
attention that is necessary. | 

Two items under the heading 
"Municipal Court" and under the 
sub-heading "Office of Bailiff of 
Municipal Court", appearing on 
page 2911 of said Journal, whichi 
read as follows: 

"31-J20 Street car and | 

railway transporta- \ 

tion within the city j 

limits ......5,000.00"! 

"31-T20 Impersonal ser- , 

vices and benefits. . . „ 3,250.00" 
My reason for vetoing the said 
two items is that the amounts ap 
propriated for these purposes wen 
exceeded in expenditures last yeai 
and the work of the office is grow 
ing, land I am informed by th( 
bailiff that the said appropriation 
will be inadequate, and they shouh 
therefore be changed. 

An item under the heading "De 
partment of Health" and under th 
sub-heading "Contagious Diseas 
Hospital", appearing on page 292 
of said Journal, which reads as fol 
lows: 

"Water Tender, 6 months 

at $105.00 ...630.00' 

The Commissioner of Healt 
states that the high pressure plar 
at this hospital is to be converted t 
a low pressure plant, and that th 
appropriation for that purpose 
provided for, but that it will not l 
possible to shut down the presei 
plant before the first of May, ar 
perhaps not until later, and that 
will, therefore, be necessary 
make the appropriation for t 
present water tenders large enou^ 
to cover a period of five montl 
instead of the three months whi( 
this item provides for. 

He also advises me that it will J

for machinists' helpers at the Re- 
duction Works and recommends an 
appropriation of $4,650 for that 
purpose. 

Three items appearing under the 
heading "Department of Heal'th" 
and under the sub-heading "Bureau 
of Vital Statistics", on page 2926 of 
said Journal, which read as fol- 
lows : 

"Punch and Machine Op- 

, erator (under Comp- 
troller's Statistical Di- 
vision) 720.00 

Punch and Machine Op- 
erator 840.00 

Punch and Machine Op- 
erator 720.00". 

I am advised througih the effl- 
3iency division, as stated above, that 
all of these positions, by reason of 
the advertised salary, should be 
?840.00 per annum, and therefore 
the changes should be made to con- 
form to siame. 

Two items appearing under the 
leading "Department of Health" 
md under the sub-heading "For 
l^ompleting Reconstruction and 0th- 
^r Equipment Composing Perma- 
nent Outfit of Thirty-ninth Street 
deduction Plant", appearing on 
)age 2931 of said Journal, which 
"ead as follows : 

"37-Y92 Ninety - fifth 
Street Incinerating 
Plant (unpaid bills) . .8,455.17 

"37-Y94 Repairs, Bride- 
well I n c i n e r a t ing 
Plant (unpaid bills) . .5,606.25". 

The Commissioner of Health in- 
orms me that the unexpended bal- 
mces remaining to the credit of the 
wo similar appropriations for i9i4 
ire required to complete the incin- 
iPating plant at the Bridewell, and 
ecommends that the same be in- 
luded in one appropriation of 
'14,061.42 instead of two appropri- 
'tions, and that the same be used 
or the completion of the Bridewell 
|)Iant. 

An item appearing under the 
leading "Department for the In- 



spection of Steam Boilers, Steam 
and Cooling Plants" on page 2933 of 
said Journal, which reads as fol- 
lows: 

"Boiler Inspector in 

Charge 1,740.00". 

My reason for vetoing this item 
is that this position is being kept 
open for an employe who is now 
filling the position of chief inspec- 
tor of steam boilers and drawing a 
salary of $1,800.00 under the civil 
service. Should he return to the 
position for which this appropria- 
tion is made, he should be paid the 
amount formerly received by him 
as such employe and which he is 
receiving in his present employ- 
ment. 

Two items appearing under the 
heading "Department of Smoke In- 
spection", on page 2934 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 
"Deputy Smoke Inspec- 
tor, 2 at $960.00 1,920.00" 

"Deputy Smoke Inspec- 
tor, 6 at $900.00 5,400.00". 

My reason for vetoing these two 
items is that the employes now 
receiving the lower salary will be 
eligible during the year to auto- 
matic advancement from $900.00 to 
$960.00 per year, and, therefore, a 
change should be made in the ap- 
propriation which will take care of 
this increase. 

An item under the heading "Ex- 
amining Boards" and under the 
sub-heading "Board of Examiners 
of Plumbers", appearing on page 
2935 of said Journal, which reads 
as follows: 

"License Inspector, 2 at 

$960.00 1,920.00". 

My reason for vetoing this item 
is that the secretary of the Board 
of Examiners of Plumbers informs 
me that skilled investigators are 
required for this work, and that, in 
his opinion, the proper grade of 
men could not be secured at the 
salary provided in the budget, and 
that therefore they should receive

the same salaries as the license in- 
spectors of the Board of Examin- 
ing Engineers. 

Five items under the heading 
"Examining Boards" and appearing 
on page 2936 of said Journal, at the 
close of the appropriations for the 
three Boards of Examiners, pro- 
vided for under said heading, which 
read as follows: 

"43-G Supplies 5.00 

43-G Furniture, fittings, 

fixtures and library. . . .150.00 
43-H Printing, stationery 

and office supplies 750.00 

43-J Street car and rail- 
way trans portation 
within the city limits. .150.00 
43-T Impersonal services 
and benefits 10.00". 

The secretary of said Examining 
Boards informs me that appropria- 
tions for supplies, for printing and 
stationery, ^and for street car and 
railway transportation, are wholly 
inadequate, and states further, that 
he believes the best results would 
be obtained by having separate ap- 
propriations for the expense itenjs 
of the different boards instead of 
including them all in one appropri- 
ation. I therefore veto these items 
in order that they may be increased 
and readjustment made in accord- 
ance with his recommendations. 

Two items appearing under the 
heading "Board of Local Improve- 
ments" on page 2939 of said Jour- 
nal, which read as follows: 

"Senior Bookkeeper 1,560.00" 

"Senior Bookkeeper 1,440.00". 

I am advised through the effi- 
ciency division of the civil service 
commission that the employe now 
drawing the lower salary as senior 
bookkeeper is eligible to automatic 
advancement under the rules of the 
commission, and that in order to 
take care of same the appropriation 
should be amended to provide for 
two senior bookkeepers at the 
higher salary. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Board of Local Improve- 



ments" on page 2940 of said Jour-| 
nal, Which reads as follows: ; 

"Assistant Engineer, 2 I 

at $1,800.00 .3,600.00".! 

My reason for vetoing said item is! 
that the minimum salary for assist- 
ant engineers is $1,920.00, and al- 
though the two employes now fillingj 
this position are not in that grade,! 
an examination is to be held within I 
a- short time, and if they, or other 
eligibles should be assigned to 
those positions after such examina- 
tion, they would be entitled to the 
salary for that grade. 

An item under l;he heading 
"Special Park Commission" and un- 
der the sub-heading "Playgrounds 
and Bathing Beaches", appearing on 
page 2952 of said Journal which 
reads as follows: 

"Assistant Playground 
Director, 11 for 4 
months at $60. ..... .2,640.00' 

My reason for vetoing said item 
is that there will be twenty-eight 
playgrounds operated during the 
year as against nineteen of last 
year, and, unless additional play- 
ground directors are provided fox 
during the summer months, eight oi 
these playgrounds will be without 
attendants. 

An item under the heading "Spe 
cial Park Commission" and undei 
the sub-heading "Construction anc 
Bettermients", appearing on pag( 
2954 of said Journal, which reads 
as follows : 

"East End Park — public 

comfort station .... .2,900.00" 

My reason for vetoing said iten 
is that the contracts have alread: 
been .let to the lowest bidder fo 
the construction work on this pubi 
lie comfort station, and said con] 
tracts exceed the amount of the ai>j 
propriation, and it should,, therej 
fore, be increased. 

In this connection I beg to stat 
that I have been importuned b;

of the Twenty-second street park- 
way which the Finance Committee 
had under consideration, and also 
people living near the so-called 
Eighty-seventh street, parkway, to 
allow the improvements at these 
parkways, as contemplated, to pro- 
ceed, and I, therefore, recommend 
that an appropriation of $5,000 for 
each of said parkways be included 
in the appropriation ordinance. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Gas arid 
Electricity" and under the sub- 
heading "Bureau of Fire Alarm and 
Police Telegraph Systems — Opera- 
tion and Maintenance and all Elec- 
tric Light Operation and Mainte- 
I nance except Arc Lamps", on page 
2955 of said Journal, which reads as 
follows : 
"Electrical Repairers, 
Circuits, 20 at 
$1,860.00 37,200.00". 

I am informed by the Commis- 
sioner of Gas and Electricity that 
the department estimates called for 
twenty-two of these repairers, and 
that the Commissioner of Public 
Works requested that provision be 
made for emergency men to take 
care of bridge lighting after mid- 
night, owing to accidents that occur 
when lights do not receive proper 
attention at bridges. It will be im- 
possible to provide those additional 
men for that purpose unless appro- 
priation is amended so as to au- 
thorize the employment of twenty- 
two of these repairers. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Electricity" 
and under the sub-heading "Bureau 
of Fire Alarm and Police Telegraph 
Systems — Operation and Mainte- 
nance and all Electric Light Opera- 
tion and Maintenance except Arc 
Lamps", on page 2955 of said Jour- 
nal, which reads as follows: 

"Arc, Lamp Trimmers 
(Nitrogen Tungsten), 
7 at $1,200.00 8,400.00"; 

Also two items appearing under 
the same heading and sub-heading 



on page 2956 of said Journal, whicli 
read as follows: 

"Teamsters or Chauf- 
feurs, 7 at $960.00... 6,720.00" 

"Laborers, at $2.50 per 
day 7,500.00". 

As to the first of these items,. the 
Commissioner of Gas and Electric- 
ity informs me that if the lamps 
now in operation and those to be 
added during the year are to be 
lighted, it will require nine lamp 
trimmers. 

As to the second of said items, he 
states that there are at present sev- 
eral laborers acting in the capacity 
of teamsters, and that the Team- 
sters' Union has taken exception to 
the assignment of these men to the 
work, that their retention would 
invite labor troubles, and that it 
will,' therefore, be necessary to have 
ten of these teamsters, or chauf- 
feurs, appropriated for instead of 
seven. 

As to the third of said items, the 
Commissioner states that by in- 
creasing the appropriation for la- 
borers, it will enable him to use 
them in many instances instead of 
linemen, who are paid much higher 
salaries, and the number of linemen 
requested by him in the estimate of 
the department was based on the 
supposition that the extra laborers 
asked for would be allowed. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Gas and 
Electricity" and under the sub- 
heading "Bureau of Fire Alarm and 
Police Telegraph Systems — Opera- 
tion and Maintenance and all Elec- 
tric Light Operation and Mainte- 
nance except Arc Lamps", on page 
2955 of said Journal, which reads as 
follows : 

"Stockkeeper 1,320.00". 

I am informed through the effi- 
ciency division of the civil service 
commission that the duties of this 
position are included under the uni- 
form civil service title scheme as 
"storekeeper" rather than "stock-

keeper" and shoul'd be changed ac- 
oordingly. 

I am also informed* by the Com- 
missioner of Gas and Electricity 
that, in order to take care of the 
subways, it will be necessary to in- 
clude the electrical mechanic at 
present employed for that purpose, 
and some additional electrical me- 
chanics as needed. I, therefore, 
recommend that an appropriation 
for these purposes, amounting to 
$3,000.00, be included in the appro- 
priation ordinance. 

Four items relating to the divis- 
ion of the appropriations made un- 
der the last mentioned heading and 
sub-heading, appearing on page 
2956 of said Journal, which read as 
follows : 

"80-AlO Fire Alarm 

and Police Tele- 
graph Systems.... $121,637.25 
80-A20 Arc L i g h t 

Circuit, operation 

and maintenance.. 80,217.50 
80-A21 Tungsten 

lighting, operation 

and maintenance.. 30,540.00 
80-A22 Incandescent 

subway lighting, 

operation and 

maintenance 1,200.00", 

My reason for vetoing said items 
is that, owing to the changes in the 
appropriations under this heading 
and sub sheading caused by the 
above vetoes, the distribution of the 
amounts for the various items, is in- 
correct and will have to be changed. 

Two items under the heading 
"Department of Gas and Electric- 
ity" and under the sub-heading 
"Bureau of Electrical Engineering", 
appearing on page 2957 of said 
Journal, which read as follows : 

"Conduit and Electrical 
Construction Inspec- 
tor, 14 at $1,560.00. .21,840.00" 

"Junior Layout Engin- 
eer, 4 at $1,620.00. . . 6,480.00". 

The Commissioner of Gas and 
Electricity asks that, instead of be- 



ing given four junior layout engin- 
eers, appropriation should be made 
for two senior and two junior lay- 
out enginers. He points out that 
this will increase the total for such 
engineers by $600.00, but in order 
that this may be done without in- 
creasing the total for the bureau, 
he recommends that one conduit in- 
spector be cut off, making the ap- 
propriation for thirteen instead of 
fourteen, thereby making a net sav- 
ing of $960.00. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Gas and 
Electricity" and under the sub- 
heading "Hire of Teams, Horses and 
Carts" and under the minor sub- 
heading "Bureau of Fire Alarm and 
Police Telegraph" on page 2958 of 



said Journal, 
lows : 



which reads as fol- 



'A u 1 m biles, 350 
days, 4 at $35.00 per 



month 



$ 1,680.00' 



also two items under the minor sub- 
heading "Electric Light Circuit, Op- 
eration and Maintenance", on page 
2959 of said Journal, which read as 
follows : 

"Automobiles, 290 

days, 4 at $35.00 per 

month $1,680.00 

Automobiles, 365 

days, 5 at $35.00 per

also an item under the minor sub- 
heading "Tungsten Lighting, Opera- 
tion and Maintenance", on page 2959 
of said Journal, which reads as fol- 
lows: 

"80-B21 Automobiles, 
365 days, 16 at $35.00 
per month $ 6,720.00";- 

also two items under the minor sub- 
heading "Subway Lighting, Opera- 
tion and Maintenance", on page 2959 
of said Journal, which read as fol- 
lows: 

"Automobile, 365 days at 
$35.00 per month 420.00 



January 25, 1915. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



3089 



Automobile, 290 days at 

$35.00 per month 420.00"; 

also an item under the minor sub- 
heading "Bureau of Electrical In- 
spection", on page 2959 of said 
Journal, which reads as follows : 
"80-B30 Automobile, 290 
days at $35.00 per 
month 420.00"; 

also an item under the minor sub- 
heading "Arc Lamps, Repairs and 
Replacements", on page 2959 of said 
Journal, which reads as follows: 

"Automobiles, 365 days, 2 
at $35.00 per month. . .840.00"; 

also an item under the minor sub- 
heading "Arc Lamps, Operation and 
Maintenance", on page 2959 of said 
Journal, which reads as follows : 
"80-B41 Automobiles, 

365 days, 5 at $35.00 

per month 2,100.00". 

,My reason for vetoing these sev- 
eral items appropriated for auto- 
mobile hire set forth above is, that I 
am informed that it is not possible 
to maintain the machines at the rate 
of $35.00 per month, and it is 
doubtful whether these machines 
can be secured at a lower rate than 
$3.75 per day for maintenance. The 
efficiency division of the Civil Ser- 
vice Commission recommended a 
charge of $2.65 per day, and while 
it is not certain that appropriations 
intended for this purpose at that 
figure will be sufficient, I recom- 
mend that a sufficient amount be 
appropriated to meet that estimate. 

An item under the heading "De- 
partment of Public Works" and un- 
der the sub-heading "Bureau of 
Compensation", appearing on page 
2966 of said Journal, which reads as 
follows : 

"Investigator 1,560.00". 

My reason for vetoin# this item is 
that the person holding the position 
of investigator was employed in the 
Bureau of Maps as a title searcher 
at a salary of $1,800.00 per year be- 
fore he was transferred to the posi- 
tion of investigator. He had to be 



transferred in order to make room 
for the former title searcher, who 
returned to take the place and who 
had been doing some special work 
for the city. The position is now 
again filled by the employe who is 
appropriated for as an investigator, 
but whose actual rank is that of ti- 
tle searcher. 

An item under the heading "De- 
partment of Public Works" and un- 
der the sub-heading "Bureau of 
Compensation", appearing on page 
2966 of said Journal, which reads as 
follows : 

"102-H Printing, sta- 
tionery and office sup- 
plies ..150.00". 

I am informed by the superinten- 
dent of this bureau that the sum 
appropriated for this purpose is in- 
adequate, and much less than was 
actually expended in the year 1914, 
and, therefore, believe that the ap- 
propriation should be increased. 

An item under the heading "De- 
partment of Public Works" and un- 
der the sub-heading "Bureau of 
Maps and Plats", appearing on page 
2966 of said Journal, which reads 
as follows : 

"Map Engineering 
Draughtsman, 4 at 
$1,440.00 5,760.00". 

I am informed that two of the 
four draughtsmen appropriated fo-:- 
under this item have occupied these 
positions for five years at this sal- 
ary, one of them for four and one- 
half years and the other for four 
years, and that they are all subject 
to promotional examination and 
their increased salaries after such 
promotion should be appropriated 
for accordingly. 

Three items under the heading 
"Department of Public Works" and 
under the sub-heading "Bureau of 
^To.^^ and Plats", appearing on page 
2966 of said Journal, which read as 
follows : 

"103-C Supplies 300.00 

103-G Furniture, fittings, 



3090 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC, 



January 25, 1314. 



fixtures and library... 50.00 
103-H Printing, station- 
ery and office supplies. 800.00"; 

Also an item under the same 
heading and sub-heading, appear- 
ing on page 2967 of said Journal, 
which reads as follows: 

"103-Tl Installation and 
maintenance of Sanborn 
atlases 600.00". 

The superintendent of maps has 
submitted a statement showing that 
the appropriations for the four 
items last mentioned are inadequate 
and are less than the amounts act- 
ually expended under similar ap- 
propriations last year, and it, there- 
fore, is necessary to increase the 
appropriation for same. 

The item's included within the 
entire appropriation which ap- 
pears under the heading "Depart- 
ment of Public Works" and under 
the sub-heading "Surveys and 
Bench Monuments", appearing on 
page 2967 of said Journal, which 
read as follows: 

"i03-Al Salaries and 
Wages — 

Assistant Engineer. .$2,500.00 
Junior Engineer 1,800.00 



4,300.00 

103-Y Construction and

Monuments (to be 
further accounted for 
under standard' ac- 
counts as expended) . . 100.00 

103-A2 Salaries and 

W^ages 

Engineer of Surveys 3,000.00". 

I have received communications 
from the bench and street grade 
engineer and from the superin- 
tendent of the bureau of sew^ers, 
setting forth at length reasons why 
this division of the sewer depart- 
ment should not be transferred to 
the bureau of maps and plats, 
among which are the fact that the 
city ordinances provide that the 
ordinances fixing the grades of 



streets should be referred to the 
sewer department, and further, the 
construction and maintenance of 
bench monuments is now done by 
the repair division of that bureau. 
These and the other reasons given 
are sufiicient to convince me that 
it would be better to retain this 
division in the Bureau of Sewers. 
The appropriation for engineer of 
surveys, included under this sub- 
heading, should be retained in the 
Bureau of Maps and Plats under 
its appropriate heading, but is not 
properly a part of the work relat- 
ing to bench monuments, and that 
item is, therefore, also vetoed along! 
with the remainder. j 

An item under the heading "De- 
partment of Public Works" and un- 
der the sub-heading "Bureau of 
Architecture", appearing on page 

2967 of said Journal, which reads 
as follows: 

"Junior Stenographer. . . 960.00". 

My attention is called to the fact 
that an increased appropriation 
was made for a junior steno- 
grapher in this department, but 
that the one who is to receive the 
additional compensation is the em- 
ploye who is paid ou.t of the regu- 
lar appropriation and not the one 
who receives his salary out of the 
capital account, and it is therefore! 
necessary to transpose the two ap- 
propriations. 

An item under the heading "De- 
partment of Public Works" and un- 
der the sub-heading "Bureau o1 
Architecture Capital Account ($10,- 
000.00)", and appearing on pagt 

2968 of said Journal, which reads i 
as follows: 

"Chief Architectural 

Draftsman 2,000.00" 

The employe filling this positioi 
is classified as a draftsman and no 
as an architectural draftsman, and 
therefore, such appropriatioi 
should be changed. 

An item appearing under th 
same heading on the same pag 



J

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



3091 



sub-heading of said Journal, which 
reads as follows: 
"Architectural Heating 

and Ventilating 

Draftsman 1,920.00". 

My reason for vetoing said item 
is that the duties of this position 
are better -described, under the uni- 
form civil service title scheme, by 
designating said employe "Archi- 
tectural Heating and Ventilating 
Engineer", and the change should 
therefore be made. 

An item under the same heading 
and sub-heading, and on the same 
page of said Journal, which reads 
as follows: 

"Junior Stenographer. 1,080.00". 

This is the junior stenographer 
mentioned above whose salary was 
increased by mistake in place of 
the salary of the junior steno- 
grapher who is paid out of the 
regular appropriation, and this ap- 
propriation should, therefore, be 
changed. 

An item under the heading 'De- 
partment of Public Works" and un- 
der the sub-headings "Bureau of 
City Hall, Mechanical Division", 
appearing on page 2970 of said 
Journal, which reads as follows: 

"Personal service other 
than by employes 550.00". 

My reason for vetoing this item 
is that the city architect informs 
me that if it is the intention to con- 
tinue the service in relation to 
calibration of electric meters, test- 
ing of coal, scales and oil, elevator 
inspection and relief men for elec- 
trical mechanics while on vacation, 
it will be necessary to have a much 
larger appropriation, and I, there- 
fore, veto said item in order that 
the city council may provide for 
same. 

An item under the heading 
"Bureau of Streets" and under the 
sub-heading "Superintendent's Of- 
fice", appearing on page 2971 of 
said Journal, which reads as fol- 
lows: 



"201 -H Printing, sta- 
tionery and office 
supplies 4,500.00\ 

My reason for vetoing said item 
is that the records show an ex- 
penditure of a much larger amount 
than the appropriation calls for, ha^ 
been made in the past during the 
corresponding period for this pur- 
pose, and that the appropriation 
Will be insufficient to meet the 
needs for which it is intended. 

An item under the heading 
"Bureau of Streets" and under the 
sub-heading "Care and Operation 
of Offices in Ward Yards", appear- 
ing -on page 2972 of said Journal 
which reads as follows: 

"201-L20 Fuel and 

power 1,200.00". 

My reason for vetoing the said 
item is that I am informed that said 
sum will be inadequate to supply 
the thirty-five ward offices with 
necessary fuel. 

An item under the heading "Bu- 
reau of Streets" and under the sub- 
heading "Care and Operation of 
Offices in Ward Yards", appearing 
oh page 2972 of said Journal, which 
reads as follows: 

"201-T21 Impersonal 

services and benefits — 
Maintenance of auto- 
mobiles, 5 at $35.00 
per month (lincluding 
unpaid bill -$73.46) . .2,173.46". 
My reason for vetoing said item 
is that I am informed that the auto- 
mobiles cannot be maintained at 
the rate per month appropriated 
for, and it will be necessary to 
eliminate the rate from the appro- 
priation, although the total amount 
appropriated will remain the same. 
An item under the heading "Bu- 
reau of Streets" and under the sub- 
heading "Care and Operation of

My reason for vetoing said (item 
is that the appropriation will not 
.pay for the telephone service alone 
for the thirty-five wards, and light- 
ing and towel service will have to 
be provided for besides, and it is, 
therefore, insufficient. 

An item under the heading "Bu- 
reau of Streets" and under the sub- 
headings "Gleaning of Streets and 
Alleys (Other than by wards) — Re- 
moval of Snow, Street Sweepings 
and Refuse", appearing on page 
2973 of said Journal, which reads 
as follows: 

'■•202-Y40 For expenses 
incurred in 1914 for 
repair of cars, switch 
tracks, etc., under con- 
tract with the Chicago 
Railways Company for 
hauling, etc. (To be 
further accounted for 
under proper standard 
accounts as expended) 8,000.00". 

My reason for vetoing said item 
is that the appropriation is intended 
for expenses incurred in the year 
1914 and for the contract for such 
work for the year 1915, conse- 
quently, the appropriation is incor- 
rectly worded. In respect to this 
matter, my attention was also called 
to the fact that no provision had 
been made for loading stations or 
for hauling over street railway lines, 
for the new incinerating plant to be 
erected at 9"bth street, and the Com- 
missioner of Public Works recom- 
mends that $30,000.00 be appro- 
priated for loading stations and 
$25,000.00 for hauling, otherwise 
the plant could not be operated. 
It will also be necessary to have ten 
additional dump carts, and no pro- 
vision has been made for these. 
There was also a proposal to sub- 
stitute the city's scow 'and tug ser- 
vice for hauling garbage, but no 
provision was made for continuing 
the present service if that was not 
done. In order to avoid the possi- 
bility of the service being inter- 
rupted, the Commissioner of Public 
Works recommends that regular ap- 



propriations be made for the ser- 
vice as it now exists, and this need 
not be drawn on in case the scow 
and tug service is inaugurated. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Streets" and 
under the sub-heading "Restoration 
of Street Openings, Capital Account 
$50,000.00)", on page 2976 of said 
Journal, which reads as follows: 

"Foreman, asphalt cut-out, at not 
to exceed $1,800.00 per year". 

I am informed that a typographi- 
cal error was made in regard to this 
appropriation and that the same 
should be changed to $1,500.00 per 
year. 

Six items appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Streets" and 
under the sub-heading "Asphalt 
Plant Capital Account ($75,000.00)", 
appearing on page 3014 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 

"Asphalt Foremen, not to exceed 
$1,800.00 per year. 
^"Foremen. Asphalt Cut-out, not 
to exceed $1,800.00 per year. 

"Foreman Asphalt Plant, $1,320.00 
per year. 

"Night Drum Men, not to exceed 
$1,500.00 per year. 

"Night Kettlemen, not to exceed 
$1,500.00 per year. 

Mixermen, not to exceed $1,500.00 
per year." 

My reason for vetoing the said 
six items is that the salaries were 
incorrectly provided for, and not in 
accordance with the grade of the 
persons holding the positions. The 
asphalt foremen receive only $1,620 
per year, the foremen, asphalt cut- 
out, receive only $1,500.00 per year, 
and the night drum men, the night 
kettlemen, and the mixermen, re- 
ceive only $1,320.00 per year. On 
the other hand, the foremen, as- 
phalt plant, receive $1,800.00 per 
year, and there are two required 
instead of one.

reau of Streets" and under the sub- 
heading "Maintenance of Equip- 



'm.

ments", appearing on page 3016 of 
said Journal, which reads as fol- 
lows : 

"206-Y40 Maintenance 
of equipment, pur- 
chase of supplies, 
printing and station- 
ery, furniture, etc., 
advertising, street 
car transportation, 
fuel and power, ser- 
vices, benefits,

(including unpaid 
bill 1910 the Baker 
Mfg. Ck)., $125.00), 
to be further ac- 
counted for under 
proper standard ac- 
counts as expended. 49,359.00". 

My reason for vetoing said (item 
is that it includes money for pay- 
ing a bill which was paid in the 
year 1914, and the same should be 
changed so as to eliminate that 
payment. 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Streets" and 
under the sub-heading "Commis- 
sioner's Vehicle Tax Reserve", on 
page 3017 of said Journal ,which 
reads as follows: 

"206-Y42 For repair- 
ing and improving 
streets and alleys 
and such of the 
through routes as 
shall be determined 
upon by the City 
Council, amounts to 
be expended in the 
discretion of the 
Commissioner o f 
Public Works and 
under his direction. 115,099.00". 

My reason for vetoing said item 
is that the sum appropriated should 
be increased by the amount which 
the next item herein vetoed will 
cause to be transferred to this fund. 

An (item under the heading "Bu- 
reau of Streets" and under the sub- 
heading "Apparatus and Equipment, 



Comprising Permanent Outfit for 
Repairing Streets and Alleys, Pay- 
able from Vehicle Tax Fund", ap- 
pearing on page 3017 of said Jour- 
nal, which reads as follows : 

"206-FX48 For pur- 
chase of one rail- 
road asphalt plant. .15,000.00". 

The Superintendent of Streets 
recommends that this item should 
be eliminated and should be includ7 
ed in the commissioner's vehicle 
tax reserve, increasing that appro- 
priation to the extent of this item, 
and I am of the opinion that this 
would be advisable. 

An item under the heading "Bu- 
reau of Sewers" and under the sub- 
heading "Superintendent's Office'^ 
appearing on page 3018 of said 
Journal, which reads as follows: 

"Junior Clerk 1,200.00\ 

My reason for vetoing said itero^ 
is that there are two junior clerks 
employed instead of one, and the 
same are necessary for the work o! 
that bureau. 

An item under the heading "Bu- 
reau of Engineering" and under the 
sub-heading "Bridges and Viaducts' . 
appearing on page 3022 of said 
Journal,- which reads as follows: 

"401-Y Preparation of 
plans, etc., including 
salaries and incidentals 
for repairs and better- 
ments of existing 
bridges and viaducts 
(to be further ac- 
counted for under 
standard accounts as 
expenditures are 
made) 9,000.00'\ 

My reason for vetoing said item 
is that a lars?or amount is required 
for this work than the appropria- 
tion calls for, and the same can be 
secured by drawing on certain ap- 
propriations under the sub-head- 
ing "Construction and Repair of 
Bridges", for repairing the Twelfth 
Street Bridge and for constructing

the approach to the Monroe Street 
Bridge which I am informed will 
not be used this year, but which 
I have not vetoed, because in case 
it appears later that same is re- 
quired for that purpose there would 
be no fund to draw on. 

Two items under the heading 
"Bureau of Engineering" and under 
the sub-heading "Repairs and Re- 
placements", appearing on page 
3023 of said Journal, which read as 
follows : 

'*401-A11 Mechanics as 
follows, not to ex- 
ceed union scale of 
wages : 

Ironworkers $ 16,753.00 

Carpenters 36,400.00 

Electr'cians 8,300 00 

Machinists 9,240 00 

Launch Operators. . 1,792.00 

Overtime 12,515.00 

Pile driver crew 15,000.00 

$100,000.00 

"401-DlO Material for 
repairs (including 
all contract liabili- 
ties) 45,000.00". 

My reason for vetoing the two 
said items is that the appropriations 
are wholly inadequate for the pur- 
pose, according to the information 
given me by the City Engineer, who 
shows that a much larger amount 
was expended for each of them for 
a number years last past, and he 
states that provision can be made 
for an increased appropriation in 
each case by drawing from the ap- 
propp'^ations for the items under the 
sub-heading "Construction and Re- 
pair of Bridges" which are men- 
tioned above. 

An item under the heading 
"Bureau of Engineering" and under 
the sub-heading "Bridge Opera- 
tion", appearing on page 3024 of 
said Journal, which reads as fol- 
lows : 
"Salaries and Wages — 
401-A21 Superin- 
tendent of Bridges, 



t 



$3,000; Bridge 
Tenders at the 
following rates : 
Hand propelled 
bridges not to . 
exceed $960 per 
year; all other 
bridge tenders at 
the following 
rates; first year's 
service $960, sec- 
ond year's service 
$1,020, third 
year's service 
$1,080, fourth 
year's service 
$1,140, and there- 
after $1,200. 
Vacation men, 5 
months at $80 
per month 208,787.50". 

My reason for vetoing said item 
is i^hat I am informed by the city 
engineer that the appropriation as 
it stands makes no allowance what- 
ever for sickness of bridge tenders 
and other absence of bridge tend- 
ers necessitating the employment 
of substitutes, and that an addition 
should be made to said appropria- 
tion in order to provide for such 
contingencies. 

Two items appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Engineering" 
and under the sub-heading "Rivers 
and Harbors", on page 3024 of said 
Journal, which read as follows: 

"Rodman ..1,320.00 

Rodman 1,200.00". 

I am advised that the rodman 
now drawing $1,200.00 per annum 
is eligible to automatic advance- 
ment, and is entitled to $1,320.00 
13er year, and the said item should, 
therefore, be changed to take care 
of said increase. 

I am advised by the Commis- 
sioner of Health that in order to 
proceed with the work on the Con- 
tagious Disease Hospital including 
the erection of an additional pa- 
vilion, nurses' home and other 
structures, it will be necessary to 
appropriate additional money con-

tingent on a bond issue for that 
purpose, and I therefore recommend 
that an appropriation of $500,- 
000.00, contingent on bond issue be 
included in the appropriation ordi- 
nance. 

Two items under the heading 
'Department of Public Works" and 
under the sub-heading "City En- 
gineer's General OfTice" appro- 
priated for under the Water Fund, 
on page 3039 of said Journal, which 
read as follows: 

"Junior Clerk, 2 at 

$1,080.00 2,160.00 

Junior Clerk, 3 at 
$960.00 2,880.00". 

My reason for vetoing these 
item^s is that one of these employes 
now appropriated for at the rate of 
$960.00 per year is eligible to auto- 
matic advancement to $1,080.00 per 
year. A change should, therefore, 
be made so as to take care of this 
increase. 

An item appearing under the 
lieading "Department of Public 
Works" and under the sub-heading 
"Superintendence of Pumping Sta- 
tions and Cribs", on page 3045 of 
said Journal which reads as fol- 
lows: 

"Draftsman 1,080.00". 

The reason for vetoing this item 
is that the employe holding this 
position is eligible to automatic 
advancement to the grade of "Me- 
chanical Draftsman" and is en- 
titled to an advance of salary to 
^1,200.00 per year. 

An item under the heading "De- 

I partment of Public Works" and un- 

j der the sub-headings "Appropria- 

j tions from Water Fund — General 

Operation", appearing on page 3055 

of said Journal, which reads as fol- 



lows : 

"502-C30 Supplies ..36,725.00". 

I lam informed by the Deputy 
Commissioner of Public Works that 
the amount appropriated exceeds 
the estimate submitted by the de- 



partment for the cribs by about 
$28,000.00, and he assumed that the 
excess was intended for operating 
water treating plants by the ap- 
plication of hypo-chloride of lime 
or liquid chlorine. I, therefore, 
deem it proper to veto said item in 
order that the amount appropriated 
for supplies may be reduced and an 
appropriation may be made for the 
construction, maintenance and op- 
eration of water treating plants. 

An item under the heading "De- 
partment of Public Works" and 
under the sub-headings "Bureau of 
Water — Assessed Rates Section", 
appearing on page 3073 of said 
Journal, which reads as follows: 

"Junior Clerk, 2 at 

$840.00 1,680.00". 

My reason for vetoing said item 
is that the Superintendent of 
Water informs me that it is neces- 
sary to have eight junior clerks 
instead of two; seven being re- 
quired for the regular work and 
one being necessary for the added 
field assessor and the added single 
rig appropriated for in the budget 
and therefore the 'said appropria- 
tion should be changed. 

Four items under the heading 
"Department of Public Works" and 
under the sub-headings "Appro- 
priations from Water Fund^ — Mis- 
cellaneous", appearing on page 
3075 of said Journal, which read as 
follows : 

"600-D Material . for 

repairs 150.00" 

"600-G Furniture, fit- 
tings, fixtures and 

library 900.00" 

"600-H Printing, sta- 
tionery and office 

supplies 20,500.00" 

"600-J Street car and 
railway transporta- 
tion within the city 
limits 1,000.00". 

I am informed by the Superin- 
tendent of Water that the appro- 
priation for the above items is too

low to meet the needs of the bureau 
for the purposes for which they are 
intended and that the restriction of 
same to the extent that they were 
cut down would be unsafe, and, 
therefore, believe that the same 
should be changed. 

By reason of the above vetoes 
the said appropriation ordinance 
will be incomplete and must neces- 
sarily be amended so as to supply 
appropriations for such items as 
were vetoed in order that some 
change might be made in same. 
There are also a number of items 
that Were omitted from the ordi- 
nance which, in my opinion, should 
be inserted, I have, therefore, 
caused an ordinance to be prepared 
amending the said appropriation 
ordinance in order to meet the 
needs of the city in respect to the 
matters in which the said appro- 
priation ordinance is now incom- 
plete, and in accordance with rec- 
ommendations from the beads of 
the various departments and 
bureaus of the city government, 
which I submit herewith, and I 
recommend the passage of the said 
amendatory ordinance without the 
usual reference to a committee. 

Yours respectfully,
